RBG dead at 87 RIP

For Immediate Release

For Further Information Contact:
September 18, 2020 Kathleen Arberg (202) 479-3211

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died this evening surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87 years old. Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993. She was the second woman appointed to the Court and served more than 27 years. She is survived by her two children: Jane Carol Ginsburg (George Spera) and James Steven Ginsburg (Patrice Michaels), four grandchildren: Paul Spera (Francesca Toich), Clara Spera (Rory Boyd), Miranda Ginsburg, Abigail Ginsburg, two step-grandchildren: Harjinder Bedi, Satinder Bedi, and one great-grandchild: Lucrezia Spera. Her husband, Martin David Ginsburg, died in 2010.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. said of Justice Ginsburg: “Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her -- a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”

Justice Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, New York, March 15, 1933. She married Martin D. Ginsburg in 1954. She received her B.A. from Cornell University, attended Harvard Law School, and received her LL.B. from Columbia Law School. She served as a law clerk to the Honorable Edmund L. Palmieri, Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, from 1959–1961. From 1961–1963, she was a research associate and then associate director of the Columbia Law School Project on International Procedure. She was a Professor of Law at Rutgers University School of Law from 1963–1972, and Columbia Law School from 1972–1980, and a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in Stanford, California from 1977–1978. In 1971, she was instrumental in launching the Women’s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union, and served as the ACLU’s General Counsel from 1973–1980, and on the National Board of Directors from 1974–1980. She was appointed a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1980. During her more than 40 years as a Judge and a Justice, she was served by 159 law clerks.

While on the Court, the Justice authored My Own Words (2016), a compilation of her speeches and writings.

A private interment service will be held at Arlington National Cemetery.

This will likely magnify the discourse and chaos x1000. Crazy, crazy.

Agree.

If people thought that the Justice Kavanaugh appointment was contentious...just wait for the opinions on this open seat to play out during an election year.

IMO, the country needs a conservative, constitutionalist now more than ever to get the country back on track.

However, this will be a stress test for America and it’s institutions.

Damn! Total respect even if I disagreed with her view of things. May she rest in eternal peace.

RIP RBG

My guess is the big question will now be whether or not the Repubs can get a nominee installed before January.

But if Mitch did have the stones, for a hasty appointment Trump could do worse than Scalia-protege Amy Coney Barrett. (Bio at the link is from 2018; and she has been sitting on the 7th Circuit, courtesy of Pres. Donald J. Trump.)

Now is the time Mitch needs to grow a pair.

Initial reports are that Mitch will give a nominee an up or down vote on the floor of the Senate.

This is an opportunity that cannot be missed - what is the left going to do...riot in the streets?

Given that the left has showed their hand - is there any doubt that they would name a nominee if they held both the WH and the Senate ?

Cocaine Mitch is up for reelection so he must produce, or he increases his chances of being thrown to the curb. Same with Lindsey Graham.

Would you say the passing of RBG takes the focus off Trump and Biden?

Gotta be some full blown implosions coming from the the other side of the aisle. RGB had a long and a full life and went down swinging.

Noooooo...if an election case were now to go to the Supreme Court...you already know how RBG would have voted. That is now all up in the air.

No longer an RBG vote that was guaranteed for Biden.

Respect to RBG for her service - but she was as partisan as they come.
