Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Sunday said she wanted to keep her position on the nation's highest court for "at least five more years," The Daily Caller reported.

"I'm now 85," Ginsburg said Sunday while attending a production about late Justice Antonin Scalia in New York called "The Originalist," CNN reported. "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, according to CNN, has hired law clerks for at least the next two court terms. She explained that "good behavior" and the lack of term limits were two of the reasons she wanted to continue on the Supreme Court.

"You can't set term limits, because to do that you'd have to amend the Constitution," she said. "Article 3 says … we hold our offices during good behavior … And most judges are very well-behaved."
