Explanation of Draft of Proposed Judicial Article Recommended by the Committee1 See page 26 for draft of Judicial Article proposed.

5. Form of the Judiciary Article

Note on the Schedule

It should probably be observed at this point that the desirability of having a system which will more or less automatically result in fairly regular rather than bunched appointments argues strongly for two other provisions in our proposed draft: (1) the provision for retirement at age 70, and (2) the provision for fixed terms of 12 years rather than appointment for life.
