Ginsburg: No plans to retire

She will turn 80 next month, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is still brushing aside any notion that she intends to step down from the U.S. Supreme Court any time soon.

“I will stay in this job as long as I can do it full steam,” Ginsburg said at an appearance before the San Diego Association of Business Trial Lawyers Friday, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

But during her speech, she echoed the sentiment expressed by many of her colleagues: a desire for the end of partisan battles in the Senate over judicial confirmations. “I’m hoping there will be members of Congress who will say enough,” Ginsburg said. “We are destroying the United States’ reputation in the world as a beacon of democracy, and we should go back to the way it was, and the way it should be.”
