Environmental lawyer Sanders says we should all pray for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for a speedy recovery from surgery.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery Thursday after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the court said.  Justice Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993 and generally votes with the liberal wing of the court. She is the second woman and the first Jewish woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

 

Prior to her appointment with the Supreme Court, Ginsburg served as a federal judge for 13 years on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. In practice, she spent a considerable portion of her career as an advocate for the equal citizenship status of women and men as a constitutional principle. She served as a professor at Rutgers University School of Law and Columbia Law School. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
