The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is taking a case that will determine if the justices, or any Pennsylvania judges, can serve on the bench past age 70.
The court announced Thursday it would consider a challenge by Montgomery County Judge Arthur Tilson to the state constitution's requirement that they retire in the calendar year in which they turn 70.
The justices are fast-tracking the case by hearing oral argument on it in Harrisburg in May. It's a matter of particular importance to Chief Justice Ronald Castille, who is running for retention this year but will turn 70 in 2014.Tilson's petition names as respondents Governor Tom Corbett, Corbett's secretary of state and the judicial system's court administrator.
Neither Tilson's lawyers nor Corbett's office of general counsel responded to calls seeking comment.
