On April 20, 2010, Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens will turn ninety-years old. He may be the next Justice to retire. Below is a list indicating what year each of the other current Justices would retire if they chose to do so in their ninetieth year.

Antonin Gregory Scalia- 2026
Anthony McLeod Kennedy- 2026
Clarence Thomas- 2038
Ruth Bader Ginsburg- 2023
Stephen Gerald Breyer- 2028
John Glover Roberts, Jr.- 2045
Samuel Anthony Alito- 2040
Sonia Sotomayor- 2044
