Nevertheless, he has always been rumored to be exiting his position due to his falling age. The 74-year-old is currently the third oldest justice on the Supreme Court.
The Justice had begun his career as a near outcast. With a tenure of more than 30 years as of 2018, Thomas has been the Court's longest-serving member.
