[Ed. – But what if they have a fervent wish not to be rotated off the court?]
If court packing sounds too extreme, then maybe court rotation will do the trick. Now that Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has said he will consider rotating justices if he gets elected next week.
Speaking at a campaign stop in Chester, Pennsylvania, Biden said he will consider shifting the Supreme Court justices to lower courts during his tenure.
“There is some literature among constitutional scholars about the possibility of going from one court to another court, not just always staying the whole time in the Supreme Court, but I have made no judgement,” Biden said, as reported by Fox News.
“There are just a group of serious constitutional scholars, have a number of ideas how we should proceed from this point on,” he added.
