Justice Ginsberg:

I’m now 85. My senior colleague Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90. So think I have about at least five more years.

The lifetime of Federal judges is important in protecting their independent. While retirement age is subjective an intensely personal personal decision, I think that 80 is a good time for judges to retire. Allow for fresh perspective on the Court, and take time to write, lecture, and reflect.
