The Life, Legacy, and Loss of 'The Notorious R.B.G.'

Notorious (adjective): publicly or generally known, as for a particular trait. A word now forever linked to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - not just for her trailblazing work on the nation's highest court, but for her perseverance, fierce attitude, and willingness to push barriers in the fight for equality under the law. Standing at just five-foot-one and barely 100 pounds, she was a legal giant and force to be reckoned with. On Friday, September 18, 2020, at the age of 87, Justice Ginsburg lost her final battle to pancreatic cancer. As the country and legal community grieves this enormous loss, we must not forget to celebrate her life and continue her legacy.
