Term limiting Supreme Court

Good discussion of the impact of limits on Supreme Court terms. Discusses age limits, review panels for impairment and 18 year terms.

I think the benefits of an 18 year term significantly outweighs the negatives. I don't consider the frequency of confirmation fights a negative as the author does.

"...The severity of Ginsburg’s current health condition pales in comparison with the ailments that have afflicted many of her predecessors on the bench—and unlike them, there is no sign that she has lost any of her intellectual edge. The fact that the court has faced, and survived, the much more serious impairment of several of its members suggests that the problem of judicial disability, while undeniable, is also manageable. In comparison with presidential incapacity, the threat of which prompted the 25th Amendment, the incapacity of Supreme Court justices is both more common and less dangerous. Fixed terms, age caps, and forced retirement are all strong medicine for the problem of judicial disability. In light of the flaws inherent in each, the better course of treatment is none at all."
