At What Age Should there be Age Discrimination?
If 70+-year- olds are out in greater numbers skiing the slopes, why can't their peers remain on the bench? I'm not going to do justice to the judges' argument here. But a lawsuit before Pennsylvania's Supreme Court seeks to let judges rule beyond the current mandatory retirement age. Is it good public policy to have judges ousted at 70? Or is it age discrimination, as the suit contends?
Is 80 the new 65? Should the older make way for the younger ? And does merit have anything to do with it? (especially in PA, where judges are elected.)
