Bill would set judges’ retirement age at 80 years

Judges in Vermont would have to retire at the age of 80 under legislation passed by the Senate. For the past 30 years judges have had to retire at the age of 70, but in November voters endorsed a constitutional amendment dropping that provision.

That amendment called on the Legislature to set the age. The House decided not to set any age, but the Senate believes the wording of the constitution requires that an age be set.
