As much as I opposed him philosophically, he is an amazing jurist and perhaps one of the most durable.
On Monday he shifted to inactive Senior Status, meaning that he will no longer hear cases or participate in the business of the court, though he may still participate in a purely administrative capacity with the court.
Amazingly, until the moment of his retirement on Monday, he held down a 100% caseload, even though he is 98 years old.
Even more amazingly is that he has held that caseload during a tenure of nearly 53 years.
Jack, enjoy your retirement, at least as much of it as you are likely to have at age 98.
