"Four Justices Are Now Over The Age Of 74"

Happy Birthday to Justice Breyer, who turned 74 yesterday. Three other justices are older than Breyer. Justice Ginsburg is 79 and Justices Scalia and Kennedy are both 76. Should any of these justices leave the Court in the next four years, they will be replaced by whoever wins the presidential election in November.
