Bond, Schoeneck & King Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
September 21, 2020
“As the second woman appointed to serve on the United States Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg holds an important place in our nation’s history and in the legal profession,” said Kevin M. Bernstein, Chair of the Management Committee at Bond, Schoeneck & King. “Justice Ginsburg’s legacy of meticulous practice and professionalism are undeniable. Her civility and belief in the rule of law are lessons for us all.”
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, appointed to the United States Supreme Court in 1993, died September 18, 2020 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
“Over the course of her tenure, Justice Ginsburg became a leader both on and off the bench,” said Monica C. Barrett, Deputy Managing Member, NYC, and Co-Chair of Bond’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee. “Her love of opera, her workout regime and her friendship with Justice Scalia are examples to all of us on how to work across divides and to live full lives.”
“For generations of working women, particularly women attorneys, Justice Ginsburg served as a role model and a beacon,” said Jennifer C. Boll, Member and Chair of the Bond Women’s Initiative. “While her legacy will live on, there is a great void with her passing. She will be truly missed.”
Bond, Schoeneck & King extends its deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
