Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead at 87

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the venerable Supreme Court justice renowned for her championing of gender equality and women’s rights, has died, according to a statement Friday from the Supreme Court. She was 87.

The iconic liberal justice died of complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas, the high court said.

Initially diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009, Ginsburg underwent treatment several for recurrences of the disease, though she vowed not to retire as long as she was physically capable of serving.

Her death comes less than two months before the presidential election in November, with the court vacancy almost certain to become a hot-button issue as Election Day approaches.
