ACS Mourns Passing, Praises Legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


Washington, D.C.  – American Constitution Society President Russ Feingold released the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“Tonight we celebrate the life and mourn the passing of one of the most influential and inspirational lawyers and jurists in American history. She was a giant, and we shall not see her like again.

In the coming weeks there will be time to discuss how, by means of her towering intellect and unflinching courage, she blazed a path toward a better life for American women, and all Americans. But tonight I can only express my profound sadness at her passing, and offer deepest condolences to her family and friends. Her memory will surely be a blessing to the millions of Americans whose lives she touched.”
