HOUSTON – On September 18, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at the age of 87 due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court and regarded as one of the great civil rights lawyers in U.S. history.
News of Justice Ginsburg’s death on Friday led to discussions among lawyers around the country as they expressed their condolences.
“It is almost incomprehensible to imagine a world without Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” said Alexander Dubose & Jefferson’s managing partner Marcy Hogan Greer. “She has done so much to protect the rule of law and the rights of those with limited access to the justice system. I can only hope that her legacy will be as enduring as the impact she has had on me and so many of the women and girls of this nation.”
