On September 18, 2020, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States, passed away at the age of eighty-seven, vacating a seat on the High Court that she had held for twenty-seven years. It is likely that Justice Ginsburg’s views in closely decided Supreme Court cases will be of most interest to Members of Congress as the Senate considers a nominee to fill her seat, as those cases may illustrate how the Court may change in her absence.
This Episode highlights several areas of law where Justice Ginsburg—either by authoring or joining a majority opinion or a notable dissent—proved consequential to the trajectory of Supreme Court jurisprudence.
