Officials Respond To The Death Of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Friday, September 18, 2020

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday. She was 87.

Senator Lamar Alexander said, “Justice Ginsburg brought decency, intelligence and principle to the Supreme Court. Her life inspired many Americans, especially young women. Her service to our country deserves great respect.”

 

Senator Marsha Blackburn said, “Justice Ginsburg was a smart, talented trailblazer who paved the way for women in the judiciary.

She worked hard to achieve prominence on her own merit, and I thank her for her service to our country. My condolences go out to her family and friends in the wake of this loss.”

 

Rep. Chuck Fleischmann said, “Brenda and I extend our prayers and deepest condolences to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s family and loved ones. She was a model for civility in a world filled with divisiveness, seeing beyond politics in her friendships with others on the Supreme Court. While we did not agree on judicial philosophy and I did not agree with her judicial decisions, her role on the court was historic.”

 

Senator David Perdue said, “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a trailblazer and brilliant legal mind. She grew up in a time when the idea of a woman on the Supreme Court seemed unimaginable, yet with hard work, tenacity, and grit, she blazed a path for all women. Justice Ginsburg’s friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia was an example of rising above ideological differences and finding common good in humanity that should inspire all of us. Bonnie and I join the nation in mourning the loss of Justice Ginsburg, and we are praying for her family.”
