Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
Since the Eisenhower administration, four Justices have died in office.
- Justice Robert Jackson died in 1954.
- Chief Justice William Rehnquist died in 2005.
- Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016.
- Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died in 2020.
It is remarkable that we have had two Justices, die four years apart, in election years.
