Justice Lawrence Koontz of the Supreme Court of Virginia will reach the mandatory age of retirement at seventy years old in February of 2011 and will be retiring. There are no other justices that are up for election on the Supreme Court of Virginia.
According to an article in the The Virginian-Pilot by Aaron Applegate and Mike Saewitz, there is a bill moving through the Virginia State Senate that could possibly raise the mandatory age of retirement to seventy-three years of age, and in some people's opinion, possibly save the state of Virginia money.
Senator John S. Edwards, D-Roanoke, the sponsor of SB206 stated, "Today's 60-somethings are like yesterday's 50-somethings. People are living longer and they're healthier."
