A recent initiative is calling on the next nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court to pledge to serve a single term of just 18 years.
The group, which calls itself Come to Terms, is a project of the Supreme Court watchdog Fix the Court and it cites the court’s increased partisan decision-making and timing of retirements from the bench; longer than expected tenures that render some justices out of touch with everyday Americans; and lack of professional diversity and real-world experience as significant reasons for change. Do you agree?
