Maybe for life appointments are a bad idea, how about just a solid block of time like 20 years.

Kagan said the justices often turn to their clerks, who are much younger, to help them understand new technologies.

But they also try to learn on their own. In one case, involving violent video games the first year she was on the court, justices who had never played the games before dove in and gave them a try, Kagan said.

"It was kind of hilarious," she said.

She didn't say which games they played.


Clan SCOTUS is going to pwn you!

/Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association is actually one of the better rulings to come out of the current court, IMHO

Dear Justices,

Here are some samples of the twisted shiat we found in your emails. Do what is right, or explain this away on the nightly news. Really, Anton?

Sincerely,

Even if 20 years was the max, rulings on the court now could come from people who took office when Windows 95 was in development and Sony was making plans for a home console of their own. Even those 20 year people would be miles behind current technology and ideology. I think my point is stop having so many out-of-touch old people running the show.

Congress.

This. I've said that for a long time. I don't think we need to wait until they become senile to replace them.

Simplicity in itself; stagger the terms so one seat comes up every two years.

I would be okay with that. Leadership goes to the most senior member?

Senior in age or in experience on the bench?

I would say experience. You've made it 16 years, you're the king/queen of the castle for the next two before we usher you out the door.
