RIP Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The Supreme Court has announced the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the age of 87 from complications due to metastatic cancer of the pancreas.  The 2020 election is officially in hyper-drive…

SCOTUS – 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. (link)

    I think Trump thought Kavanaugh’s nomination was going to be easy, he picked him because he was just right of centre. This time he know’s whoever he picks the Dems will go after with everything they have, so might as well pick Amy Barrett.

          There’ll be violence after the election regardless. The only question is how long it’ll last, and what the historic ramifications will be. Trump wins, and the usual suspects will go insane… Antifa, BLM, and their buddies will take their riots to the highest level. But that’ll only last a few days, will be squashed in the harshest way possible, and their time will be OVER for now and forever.

          On the other hand, should they someway fraudulently “defeat” Trump… well, that’s when this country will descend into all out civil war. There will be no inauguration of Biden (or whoever) in January. The country will be unrecognizable by that point, and so the makeup of our various branches of gov’t will be the least of our worries.

    I don’t think that this changes anything.

    Everyone knew Ginsburg could go at anytime.
    No one could realistically believe any nomination could get confirmed in the six weeks before the election.
    No one could believe that Ginsburg could live another four years.
    So, we’re right where we were yesterday with whoever prevails Nov 3 (you’ll notice I didn’t say “whoever wins”) will nominate her replacement.
    I think anyone who is aware of the significance of the SC would already have picked their team and is not sitting on the fence.

    I gotta think Collins will definitely lose if she doesn’t support a replacement. Murkie isn’t up for re-election this year.
    Graham and Grassley have said in the past they wouldn’t take it up in an election year. Graham needs to know he won’t win re-election, if he doesn’t take it up.
    I think Dems would be demoralized, if we act to replace. Republican voters will be irate if they don’t

      That is not what was said. Garland happened during Obama lame duck and McConnell simply followed precedent which I believe Biden had a hand in matter decades earlier. Ginsburg passing is completely different situation as it happened during the first term of President Trump who according to logic and if you believe in fact and not spin is very likely to win a second term.
      The senate being of same party of the current President will not let SC Justice vacancy wait til after November 3rd and allow possibility of 4-4 tie be an issue in a Presidential election that the Democrats have openly stated for the last year they will contest no matter what.
