Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died at 87
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of pancreatic cancer on Friday, she was 87.
Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993 and spent more than two decades on the bench.
As the most senior member of the court's liberal side, she was known for voting progressively on divisive issues such as same-sex marriage, abortion, health care, immigration, voting rights and affirmative action.
Ginsburg's legacy will be that of a skillful litigator who championed the advancement of gender equality and women's rights, winning multiple arguments before the Supreme Court of which she would later become a member.
Her death leaves a vacancy and allows President Trump the opportunity to further solidify a conservative majority on the court.
