Analysis examines the aging of federal judges

Tisha Thompson at WTTG-Washington, D.C., found more than one-third of federal judges are at least 70 years old, the age at which the majority of states require their judges to retire. One judge is more than 101 years old and still hearing a full case load. Thompson created an interactive Web site with state-by-state comparisons of federal versus local judges using a database she created based on the biographical and demographic data for more than 1,200 judges.
