Article III of the U.S. Constitution states The judicial power of the United
States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the
Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the
supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior, and
shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall
not be diminished during their continuance in office. This article means that
all federal judges including Supreme Court justices have life tenure. This
means they will be appointed for life and only lose their job when then choose
to resign, retire, or if they are impeached.
* Discuss the pros of lifetime appointment for Supreme Court justices.
* Discuss the cons of lifetime appointment for Supreme Court justices.
* Do you think Supreme Court judges should be appointed for life or
should they have term limits, like officials in Congress and the
President? Explain your position.
