Retirement age for judges may increase

The Virginia Judicial Council has recommended raising the mandatory retirement age for judges from 70 to 75. That’s fine with the Senate Courts of Justice Committee, which reported SB 19 on a 10-4 vote last week and referred it to the Finance Committee.

Yesterday, in HB 783 the House Courts of Justice Committee voted to raise the age to 73 on a 15-7 vote.

Anybody for 74?
