Death of US Supreme Court judge.Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the oldest judge in the US Supreme Court, has died.She breathed her last at his home in Washington DC on Friday, local time. She was 87 years old at the time of her death.
Earlier this year, veteran Justice Ginsburg said she had to take chemotherapy because she was diagnosed with cancer. A statement from the family after her death said she had been suffering from pancreatic cancer for a long time.
Ginsberg was one of the ideologues of liberal feminists in the United States. She has served as a judge of the country’s highest court for 27 years at a time.
“The nation has lost a judge of historic standing,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in a statement.
“We lost a dear colleague in the Supreme Court. Future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we know her – a tireless and steadfast champion of justice.”
Ginsburg’s death has sparked speculation about who will replace her in the country’s highest court. In particular, analysts say it could be a major issue ahead of next November’s US presidential election.
