Will another Supreme Court seat open up in 2017?

Will another Supreme Court seat open up in 2017?


Ted Cruz just posited that there might be another Supreme Court vacancy as soon as this summer.

Is Lyin' Ted at it again, or does he know something we don't?

Make your bets!

The current Supreme Court justices are:

Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch

Decision Logic

This bet will resolve as YES if any of the above justices have permanently left their tenure as of Dec 31, 2017 at 11:55PM PST
This bet will also resolve as YES in the unlikely event that:
- If a new Supreme Court Justice is confirmed by the US Senate to fill the vacancy left by Antonin Scalia, takes the Oath of Office, and subsequently (and permanently) leaves his tenure before Dec 31, bet resolves as YES.
- If a judge is impeached AND removed from office, this bet resolves as YES.
