Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died September 18th, 2020 at home with her family, she was 87. She was born on March 15, 1933, in Brooklyn, New York to Nathan and Celia Bader. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and then went on to study law at both Harvard and Columbia universities. She was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court on June 14, 1993, by President Bill Clinton. President Trump was caught off guard by a reporting when he found out she had passed away, you can see his reaction here.
With her advancing age and her ongoing battle against cancer, it has been the talk of many discussions about the possibility of a last-minute court vacancy before the 2020 presidential election. The court is now split with a slight majority on the conservative side but both Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kavanaugh often vote on the liberal side. The opportunity for President Trump to appoint another conservative judge to the court would ensure the court’s conservative views for many years.
