Earlier today Supreme Justice Ruth Bader Gingsburg lost her battle to cancer at 87 years of age. She had been going through chemotherapy since July and was willing to work through her sickness. She stated she likes to stay busy and worked a full schedule throughout her battle. She was a fiery game changer who stuck up for the civil rights of all. Born and raised in the Flatbush section of New York she was dubbed “The Notorious RBG”. Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit by President Jimmy Carter on June 30th 1980. Later, she was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton on June 14th 1993. Justice Gingsburg has an amazing legacy influencing her colleagues on many occasions.
