There is a conference tomorrow at Duke University Law School on Reforming the Supreme Court? In a commentary in the Wall Street Journal today, Steven Calabresi and James Lindgren discuss one possible reform which is ending life time tenure for the Justices. Specifically they discuss an amendment to the Constitution that would limit the terms of Justices to 18 years. The terms would be staggered so that one Justice's term would expire every 2 years. I think such an amendment has merit. What do you think?
