Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. She passed away Friday from complications related to cancer. She was 87.

Ginsburg served 27 years on the Supreme Court.


Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said in a statement to The New York Times: “Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”
