    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the most accomplished women in America’s history and a pop-culture icon, too. She’s on T-shirts. She’s on mugs. She accessorizes her robes at the neckline with an assortment of stylish jabots that court-watchers read like tea leaves to see which way she might be leaning. A relentless voice on the bench for women’s equality and civil rights, Ginsburg has been the subject of a best-selling book, an Emmy-winning documentary, and the Hollywood biopic On the Basis of Sex. Now, a traveling museum exhibit inspired by and named for the book...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered her thoughts Thursday on how historians will view this period of American history. "An aberration," the 86-year-old justice said when the question was posed to her at an event hosted by Amherst College, the Boston Globe reported. The event's moderator, Amherst College President Carolyn Martin, asked several other political questions of Ginsburg, who sidestepped controversial topics like the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Instead, she spoke about broader aspects of political life in America today. “The people in this room gives me hope," Ginsburg replied when Martin asked her what she thinks will...

    Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas had two very different opinions when it came to a ruling on Tuesday that effectively upheld an Indiana law on disposal of fetal remains. The court’s ruling allowed Indiana to enforce a requirement that abortion clinics either bury or cremate fetal remains following an abortion. The justices said in an unsigned opinion that the case does not involve limits on abortion rights. Ginsburg was one of two liberal-leaning justices who dissented. Ginsburg said in a short solo opinion that she believes the issue does impact a woman's right to have an...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) is no friend of the Second Amendment. Justice Ginsburg voted against the Heller decision. She voted against the McDonald decision. Her opinion on the Second Amendment is clear.   From armsandthelaw.com: “If the court had properly interpreted the Second Amendment, the Court would have said that amendment was very important when the nation was new,” she said. “It gave a qualified right to keep and bear arms, but it was for one purpose only — and that was the purpose of having militiamen who were able to fight to preserve the nation.”” Ruth's position is to...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is having serious health problems and Democrat leaders have announced that in the unfortunate event she should pass away, whoever Trump appoints to replace her will be guilty of sexual misconduct. As conservatives quietly issued prayers for the recovery of their long-time political opponent Ginsburg, leftists broke off their raucous celebrations of the death of libertarian billionaire David Koch to issue denunciations of the sexual misconduct committed by whoever Trump appoints as Ginsburg's replacement should Ginsburg die. At The New York Times, a former newspaper, editor-in-chief Blithering Prevarication the Third was informed of Ginsburg's...

    In the aftermath of the news that liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has once again been treated for pancreatic cancer, talk of a potential vacancy on the court has once again heated up. While there will be disagreement over how to handle such a vacancy, it's clear that everyone knows a Supreme Court battle in 2020 will be brutal and contentious. Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, weighed in on Friday, "We all wish her a long, happy, healthy life. I will say this though, and again, there’s no reason not to think that she won’t...
  • Justice Ginsburg’s “Bile Duct Stent” – A Treatment Used in Advanced Cases to End of Life Care

    This is important because a biliary stent is only installed if a tumor was large enough to cause blockage of the bile duct from the liver to the intestine. It is typically performed in cases where the patient has cancer on the duct itself and often predicates liver cancer. Again the stent is typically only used in advanced cases and often only surgery is done for early cases:

    KQ2 TV News ^ | August 23, 2019 | By Elizabeth Landau,
    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been treated for pancreatic cancer in New York City, the Supreme Court announced Friday. While the court said Ginsburg's tumor "was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body," and no further treatment was needed, pancreatic cancer remains a serious diagnosis for the 86-year-old liberal icon. Pancreatic cancer was the third-leading cause of death from cancer in the United States in 2018, after lung and colorectal cancers, according to the National Cancer Institute. About 95% of people with pancreatic cancer die from it, experts say. It's so lethal because during...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Wednesday night defended Associate Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch as "very decent" and "very smart" individuals after one of her former law clerks suggested that new nominees lack personal decency. Ginsburg's comments turned heads on social media, given the contentious and bitterly personal confirmation hearings last year that Kavanaugh said "destroyed" his family. At an hourlong question-and-answer session, Duke Law professor Neil Siegel lamented that "nominees for the Supreme Court are not chosen primarily anymore for independence, legal ability, personal decency, and I wonder if that’s a loss for all of us."

    Supreme Court justice and liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Tuesday praised newly-confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh for appointing an entirely female staff. Ginsburg spoke about her own history in the fight for gender equality to a packed auditorium at Georgetown Law School. Ginsburg praised Kavanaugh — whose controversial confirmation was marked by allegations of sexual assault — and remarked that the court's upcoming fall term will be the first time in history that more women will be clerking than men. "There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term and it's thanks to our new justice, Justice...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave credit to her fellow Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh on Friday, touting the court's newest member for boosting the number of female law clerks serving the court. Ginsburg, in prepared remarks to a conference for judges in New York, noted that while women have made progress towards equal representation among the court's clerks there are areas where improvements are still needed. "Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew. Thanks to his selections, the Court has this Term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks,"...

    The Supreme Court on Monday found that a criminal defendant can be sentenced for violating his supervised release, even if the release expires while he is incarcerated ahead of facing new charges. The justices, divided in the 5-4 decision, ruled against Jason Mont's argument that a district court shouldn't be able to charge him for violating his release because the term had expired at the time of the new sentencing. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sided with conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh in the majority. Justice Neil Gorsuch joined liberal Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer...

    President Trump has reportedly said he is "saving" Judge Amy Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, according to Axios. Barrett was a popular choice among conservative activists as a candidate to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy before Trump eventually nominated Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Axios reported that Trump has made clear his desire to replace Ginsburg with Barrett since Kennedy’s decision to retire, telling people on separate occasions, "I'm saving her for Ginsburg."
