Rockland Attorneys Reflect on Legacy of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who Died Friday

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, just the second woman to serve on the nation’s highest court, died Friday. No sooner had she passed the tributes came pouring in, but so did concerns about how and when to go about replacing her on the bench. Nanuet attorney Patricia Finn, who hosts “The Good Health Lawyer” here on WRCR Mondays at 5pm, says Ginsberg was a leader among women in the legal profession…

Sonia Burgos Crannage is with the law firm Sichol & Hicks in Suffern, and is the host of “Senior Moments” every third Thursday at 9:30 here on WRCR, and says she admired how Ginsberg spent her entire legal career fighting for women’s rights…

Congresswoman Nita Lowey called her a giant and a hero for little girls. Rockland County Executive Ed Day said she would be remembered as a “hero and champion who never stopped fighting.” The Brooklyn-born Ginsberg had served on the Supreme Court since 1993. Her death, which came just as Jews were marking the Rosh Hashana holiday, was due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer. She was 87.
