Justice Stevens to Remain on Court Despite Retirement Predictions

The Legal Times (3/10, Mauro) reports, “Six weeks shy of his 89th birthday, Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is not, repeat not, winding down. After the last two weeks, gearing up might be the better term.” His “staying power may give the lie to long-running predictions that he will retire soon.” However, “while Stevens has dismissed the notion, some friends theorize he hopes to remain on the Court into 2011, when he would break the record for longevity set by William O. Douglas, who served 36 years and seven months until Stevens replaced him in December 1975. In early 2011, Stevens would also surpass Oliver Wendell Holmes as the oldest sitting justice in history.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
