Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she isn’t going anywhere. The Supreme Court Justice, who has become a cult figure among liberals in recent years, says that she has no plans to leave the courtroom anytime soon, and actually plans to hold her seat for five . more years, until she is at least 90.

“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said at a recent appearance, according to CNN. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”

Ginsburg spoke after the performance of The Originalist, a play about the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who Ginsburg had a grudging friendship with and respect for.
