RUTH GINSBURG PASSES AWAY

RUTH GINSBURG PASSES AWAY

A LIBERAL VOICE ON SCOTUS DIES AT 87

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural and feminist icon, died Friday.

The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas.

The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg died at her home in Washington surrounded by family. She was 87.

“Our nation has lost a justice of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts said.

RUTH GINSBURG PASSES AWAY AFTER LENGTHY ILLNESS

“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 tired and resolute champion of justice.”

Architect of the legal fight for women’s rights in the 1970s,

Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation’s highest court, becoming its most prominent member.

Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her,

And it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.

Just days before her death, as her strength waned,

Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera:

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

  1. We, as a nation, have lost yet another sterling intellect. Justice R.B.Ginsburg and Justice Antonin Scalia. The nation is weakened by their passing.
