    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) says the late United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was “far more forthcoming” on women’s rights than 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett during a hearing on Tuesday. On the second day of Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee, Harris suggested the mother of seven is not as expressive as Ginsburg was on the issue of women’s rights. “Judge Barrett, several times today, you have quoted Justice Ginsburg’s testimony about not making predictions in future cases,” Harris said. “However, she was far more forthcoming at her confirmation hearing about the essential rights of women.” Harris, who is running on the Democrat presidential ticket with Joe Biden, has...

    Calls by Democrats and liberals to "pack" the Supreme Court would do lasting damage to the federal judiciary, George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley told "Your World" Monday. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has declined to make any statement on the idea, telling an interviewer "No" when asked Friday whether voters deserved to know whether he would increase the number of seats on the highest court in the land.  "It is a curious way to honor the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg because she spoke vehemently against this type of proposal," Turley reminded host Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "She said it would effectively destroy the court. And it would. "Just to dump five or six new members so you get an instant majority -- that would do considerable violence to the...

    First, consider the brilliant litigation career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In Frontiero v. Richardson (1973), she persuaded the Supreme Court that it was unconstitutional for the military to provide living quarters and medical benefits for the families of servicemen, but not for the families of servicewomen. In Kahn v. Shevin (1974), she challenged a Florida law that granted widows an annual $500 property tax exemption, while denying the same exemption to widowers. She ran aground on Justice Douglas’ opinion that “there can be no dispute that the financial difficulties confronting the lone woman in Florida or in any other State exceed those facing the man. Whether from overt discrimination or from the socialization process of a male-dominated culture, the job...

Otey, Esq., in whose column this piece originally appeared: With the loss of the incredible Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg this past week, we were all deluged by floods of words on her life and achievements, many by writers who had never met this courageous lawyer.

Within a few days of asking former Brooklyn Law School Dean Nicholas Allard to help us out, we received this moving, personal “elegy.” Since leaving as dean and president of BLS, where he was credited...
    It was a “Notorious” error by Kamala Harris.

T-shirts with a lot of pride, but since she passed, there are parents reminding their children that she helped their lives,” Harris said during a speech about President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. The California Democrat mistakenly uttered the nickname of Brooklyn-born rapper Biggie Smalls rather than referring to Ginsburg as “The Notorious RBG,” as she was popularly known late in her long career on the bench. “FWIW, Harris’s prepared remarks did...

    Trump's pick to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has shown that she is willing to imperil LGBTQ rights. Amy Coney Barrett, chosen by Donald Trump chose to take over the late-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court, has the capacity to do great harm to LGBTQ rights, advocates for equality say. Barrett, who currently sits on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, has ties to anti-LGBTQ groups, has sided with opponents of LGBTQ rights on key legal issues, and has made a number of harmful statements about transgender people.

    Abby Livingston September 26, 2020 12:00AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on The Texas Tribune. WASHINGTON — A ceremonial resolution honoring the life of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg failed in the Senate on Tuesday after U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz objected to language his Democratic counterparts added noting her dying wish that a successor not be chosen until after the presidential inauguration early next year. The war of words on the Senate floor is likely a preamble to a coming brawl to replace Ginsburg. The liberal justice died Friday, leaving a vacancy that, if filled by a conservative, could have sweeping ramifications on several American policies and civil liberties. : "Unfortunately, the Democratic leader has...

    “The graveyards are full of indispensable men,” Charles de Gaulle is reputed to have said. Despite the mordant wisdom most of us see in that statement, an alarming number of people refuse to follow his implicit advice. Many of us, particularly in America, the land of rugged individualism, see ourselves as crucial in the grand scheme of things, and are reluctant to leave the stage. That may explain the real insecurity behind the common belief in the immortality of the soul. Admittedly, roughly two-thirds of the way through my career, I started to see myself as experienced, reliable, professionally knowledgeable, and possessing good judgment: all the ingredients for an inflated sense of indispensability. As retirement approached, I felt more than...

Since their first meeting, Ginsberg committed to working out twice a week with Johnson, and over the years,...
