Best Answer

Supreme Court justices have lifetime appointments--most of them retire, but they can stay on the bench until they die like William Rehnquist did.

They can be impeached, but that's the only way to get rid of one. The only justice to have ever been impeached was Samuel Chase, who was acquitted. Samuel Chase was nominated to the Court by George Washington.
