Supreme Court Reform

Today, at law.com, Marcia Coyle reports:  Law Profs, Former Judges, Attorneys Urge Major Reforms for Supreme Court. The article describes four proposals, ranging from regular biennial appointment of new justices to identifying justices who are no longer able to perform competently.  I suspect there is a special kind of inertia regarding the way the Supreme Court works.  While we all grew up legally watching the Court change/modify/grow the law, we did so while the Court operated against a set of background procedures regarding operation and composition:  Judicial Review must be; subject-matter jurisdiction must be challengable at any time; life tenure means life tenure; and so on.  --RR
