Supreme Court Stats Reveal Impending Milestones For Justice Stevens is an interesting Feb. 26, 2010 article from the National Law Journal. Stevens, who turn 90 in April, is about to pass Justice Marshall as the third longest Justice with the most tenure on the Court. He needs about 2 more years to surpass the Justice Douglas who has the most tenure with the Court. Stevens joined the Court in 1975.
Stevens needs to work about another 10 months to become the oldest Justice. Currently, the oldest Justice is Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Congrats to Justice Stevens. He is a remarkable man.
