Ginsburg Can Stay On The Supreme Court And Vote, No Matter How Sick Or Disabled She Becomes

Washington Examiner
by Melissa Quinn
January 09, 2019 12:00 AM

Excerpt:

With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continuing to recover from cancer surgery, whispers about whether she should step down have grown louder. But as a member of the Supreme Court with life tenure, Ginsburg can remain on the bench for as long as she desires, no matter how sick she becomes.

Ginsburg had surgery Dec. 21 to remove two malignant nodules found in her left lung and has been recuperating at her home ever since. The procedure kept Ginsburg off the bench on Monday and Tuesday, marking the first time she missed oral arguments in her 25-year tenure on the Supreme Court.

Though she was not present for oral arguments, Chief Justice John Roberts said Ginsburg would participate in the cases by reading briefs and argument transcripts.

In addition to reviewing relevant case material from home, Ginsburg has also voted in matters before the court. There is no written rule prohibiting justices who are missing from the bench from casting their votes.

Before her cancer surgery last month, for example, Ginsburg voted remotely to deny a request from the Trump administration to enforce its new asylum policy, according to reports.

At 85, Ginsburg is not the oldest justice to have served on the high court and is not the only one to have battled illness during their tenure.

How is that fair to those who have cases before the court?
We hear almost hourly how Trump is not competent to be president

It's not that far-fetched. They'll do anything to keep her there. :P

She’ll wind up like so many old ladies so who die and are then stored in their relatives freezer so they can keep the Soc Sec checks coming. Old RBG may even now be inhabiting the deep freeze and her clerks writing her opinions. Only have to stretch it out a year or so.

I'm in favor of Mandatory retirement at 80-ish for ALL federal employees, including congress and Scotus. I'd even support a constitutional amendment.

I was thinking something similar -- what safeguards are in place to make sure her votes are actually her votes? Someone visits her house and comes back and says she voted this way. How do we know that the person didn't lie (1) about how she voted or (2) that she was actually conscious to make the vote in the first place? It's a serious question. Would a party that opposes voter ID to verify that voters are who they say they are lie about who cast RGB's votes? Of course they would.

Airline Pilots and Special Agents are required by law to retire at 65. Maybe we should demand the same of these demented creeps?

Democrats continue to vote even after death, so this is just SOP.

The consolation is that even if someone else actually decides how she votes, it canít really be more EXTREME than RBG herself voting.

Reminds me of First Lady Wilson when President Wilson had a stroke. She basically was president for a time.
