A group of House Democrats introduced a bill on Tuesday to enact term limits for Supreme Court justices, arguing that the move will “restore legitimacy and independence to the nation’s highest court.”
The legislation, titled the Supreme Court Tenure Establishment and Retirement Modernization Act, would authorize the president to nominate Supreme Court justices every two years — in the first and third years after a presidential election. The justices who have been on the court the longest will be moved to senior status first.
Am I wrong? This'd require an Amendment.
"The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour..." US Constitution, Article III, Section 1
Terms for House members, Senators and the President and Veep are defined in Articles I and II.
In any event, this ain't happnin in this Congress.
