6 Prominent Pennsylvania judges have filed a lawsuit against the state challenging the requirement that all members of the bench retire at the age of 70.
The lawsuit lists Governor Corbett and Treasure McCord as defendants. It alleges judges have been singled out because of their age, and not their ability.
Currently the law says that all state justices and judges who are 70 must retire at the end of the calendar.
The lawsuit was filed by attornies representing the following judges:
Judge John Driscoll
Judge John W. Herron
Senior Judge Benjamin Lerner
Judge Sandra Mazer Moss
Judge Joseph D. O'Keefe
Judge Leonard N. Zito
