Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died.

The Associate Justice passed away from complications due to metastatic pancreatic cancer. She was 87. Ginsburg had sat on the Court since 1993.

The Hill reports:

Her first major opinion as a justice came in 1996 when she wrote the majority decision in United States v. Virginia. The ruling struck down the Virginia Military Institute’s 157-year-old policy of male-only admissions as unconstitutional, and set a stricter legal standard for government action that treats men and women differently.

“Women seeking and fit for a VMI-quality education cannot be offered anything less under the state’s obligation to afford them genuinely equal protection,” Ginsburg wrote in the 7-1 decision.

Ginsburg also gained renown for her cogent and sharply worded dissents.

According to Linda Greenhouse, a longtime Supreme Court reporter and analyst for the New York Times, it was through Ginsburg’s dissenting opinions during the mid-2000s that she “found her voice, and used it.”

She was a strong broad. Sad that she didn’t leave this world as a retired person. It’s a shame that the politicians will make this into a hateful political agenda issue. Can’t just let her Rest In Peace

Hanging on just because “orange man bad” makes one hope it was a very painful death!

She could have retired when Obama was still President. Now, on her deathbed, she says she doesn’t want Trump to replace her. Too bad lady, you wanted your cake and eat it too. It doesn’t usually work that way.

It was all political already. Being why she died while being on the bench because she didn’t like Donald Trump like the rest of the dnc and most of the rnc. I’m sure she’s been dead over a year being she’s been missing from the spotlight or unable to rule anything for almost 2 years.
