Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg 1933 - 2020

Washington, DC...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.


The Roberts Court, November 30, 2018. Seated, from left to right: Justices Stephen G. Breyer and Clarence Thomas, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Samuel A. Alito. Standing, from left to right: Justices Neil M. Gorsuch, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Brett M. Kavanaugh. Photograph by Fred Schilling, Supreme Court Curator's Office.




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.

How long do you think it will take for McConnell to prove his hypocrisy?


“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

    Seriously, what do you think the Ds would do if the situation was reversed?

    Secondly, the Ds have been playing political hardball since Trump was elected...shampeachment, unending investigation, a crooked, biased and fake media part and parcel of the DNC.

    Suck it up buttercup. Your party started this crap.

    She should have retired a long time ago. There was no way that this woman could have done her job with all of the serious health issues that she had. Now is the time for President Trump to replace her. Hopefully she is replaced ASAP with a black woman so the Democrats can't accuse her of being a racist nor any sexual accusations.

        She was more accomplished and important to this nation, over many decades, she was strong menatally and physically , despite all her steuglles. And it is simply astounding to hear some low level achiever in Calaveras county render the opinion like the one above yours.

          It takes a low level achiever to know one. RGB was too damn old to do her job. She was a sick, frail old lady that should have been gone a long time ago. She needs to be replaced with a woman years younger than her and will stand up to these damn Democrats. If you don't like my comment then you can't handle the truth.

    Sure, you bet. Dying and going to the gates of hell and she wishes she's not replaced until a new president is installed in 2025.

    This is bigger Bee Ess than the Russian collusion story.

Thank God she's dead. Hard to come up with someone who has done more damage to this country than RBG. Trump put out a list of justices he would nominate in case of a vacancy and the people of this country already voted on it. No need to vote again. Get er done Mitch.

In case you hillbillies haven’t noticed, this country is run by lawyers, most have no common sense, make laws, make more laws, and make sure some where along the line, the law is challenged so all of you ambulance chasers get a piece of the action! What a disgrace! It’s like voting for a President that never served in combat, and he or she can send millions into harms way! The average AMERICAN is illiterate when it comes to choosing leadership!

The most ironic aspect of those Pro-Lifers,Trumpers, racists, etc. who are celebrating RBG’s deaths along with her hand picked replacement; if a right wing nut, pro-lifer is appointed into the Supreme Court and bans abortions is it will only create more liberals. Those Latinos & minority groups will have even bigger families & women will remember the horrors of having to once again get abortions illegally and will fight again to legalize it.

      Can someone please explain to me:
      1. When America was great for them? In the 50s , 60s? Was it because you had more income. Bigger middle class. The dollar earned went further?
      2. When did it go bad? Was it sudden, gradually?

      I'm really interested in understanding that MAGA movement.
