Debate Heats Up on Retirement for Ginsburg

Court-watchers are renewing a debate over whether U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who recently turned 81, ought to retire so that President Barack Obama could pick her successor while Democrats still control the chamber, Gavel Grab reports. With control of the U.S. Senate increasingly seen as up for grabs in the midterm elections this year, many news sources have chimed in the debate, including The Economist, Slate, The Atlantic, The Washington Post and Bloomberg View.
