Williams' Statement On The Passing Of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

September 18th, 2020

Press Release

"The country has lost a brilliant mind, a fearless fighter, a diligent public servant who spent her life dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights of the vulnerable.

"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's legacy as a jurist was incredible - inspiring, progressive and just. Her impact on the court was tremendous in scope and in value as we strive for an America that lives up to its promise. Her resilience seemed unmatchable as she worked to fulfill that promise.  Her passing in this time, in this moment of history, is an unfathomable loss which will reverberate with the volume of her legacy, her volumes of work, for many years to come.

"No matter who the next President nominates to the Court, Justice Ginsburg is, and always will be, irreplaceable."
