"justice ginsburg" Discussed on KQED Radio
"As I said, I think in response to this question yesterday, I do share justice Claire's approach to text originalism and textual ism. But in the litany of cases that you've just identified the particular votes that he cast are different question of whether I would agree with the way that he applied those principles. In particular cases, and I've already said you know, and I hope that you aren't suggesting that I don't have my own mind or that I couldn't think independently or that I would just decide like, Let me see what Justice Scalia has said about this in the past, because I assure you I have my own mind. But everything that he said eyes not necessarily what I would agree with what I would do if I were just a spirit that was Justice Scalia so I share his philosophy. But I have never said that I would always reach the same outcome is heated. Understood. But I think a case like this is a striking example of what it might mean to replace Justice Ginsburg and her methodology in her approach with someone much closer to Justice Scalia And frankly, to me, this comes back in part to the president who nominated you. President Trump did not nominate you to carry on justice Ginsburg's legacy. He nominated you because he wants to undermine or change your shift that legacy and he's been very clear repeatedly before you were chosen about his intent to nominate justices in the mold of Justice Scalia You recognized yesterday in an exchange with Senator Leahy that replacing Justice Scalia with Justice Garland had Judge Garland become justice. Garland would have changed the balance of the court. It's something you wrote about in 2013 in the Texas Law Review. You recognize these balance shifts are why Supreme Court nominations are so much at issue in presidential elections. Do it just acknowledge that your confirmation even though you won't be identical to justice, Scalia will profoundly impact the balance of the court and the way in which it decides future cases. I think the statement that I was having an interchange with Senator Leahy about yesterday was about an interview that I gave shortly after Justice Scalia's death, but after Judge Garland's nomination And I did say that use that phrase lateral move and what I meant by that. I mean, I very much agree with Senator Sasse that we shouldn't talk about Republican judges and Democratic judges because I think they're just judges. But of course, it's true that judges have differences in judicial philosophy. So I actually think Judge Justice Breyer and Justice Claire a great example of this because they sometimes have public debates. With Justice Scalia advocating originalism and justice friar advocating active liberty and there's room on the court for that for having different approaches its not about having you know your colleagues on the other side of the aisle. You know, all of you in the room have different policy platforms, but judges don't have policy platforms. But it is certainly the case that judges take different approaches. Tio interpreting the test. And that is what I meant. When I was describing how the balance of the court would shift, it would be Away from one balance and toward another in terms of how judges think about the text and judge. What I want to explore with you in the time I have remaining is exactly how those shifts in methodology in approach. May well have a dramatic impact on the policy outcomes on what is and isn't upheld as law going forward on the board behind me. I've asked my team if we would just go back and look at cases. All of these cases listed. It's roughly 120 have something in common. Justice. Ginsburg was in the majority justice Scalia was in the minority dissenting. And these are cases that touch on nearly every aspect of modern American life. I've talked a lot yesterday about healthcare in the affordable care act. Yes, that's on there. A number of my colleagues have talked about some other areas. But what's striking is if you if you just look at what a 54 balance towards this methodology means have changed towards a five for balance. To this methodology. It has huge consequences. For education for consumer rights for access to the courts for civil rights for immigration for environmental protection for Native American rights for workers rights for elections for executive power. For reproductive rights for free speech, civil justice, economic development, privacy, government misconduct, prisoner rights, capital punishment, gun safety. In criminal justice. In each and every one of these cases if Justice Ginsberg had been replaced by a justice with the same core method, illogical approach and view of the law and decision making You can't predict exactly how the case would have turned out. But in virtually every case, it would have moved in a different direction and in a direction much closer to Scalia's philosophy and farther away from Justice Ginsburg And that's why I think your views on precedent matter and we should take a few minutes and go through them. It's something you've written about at length and where you're quite well grounded. The presidents of the court, which is what 120 cases are are precedents upon which lead against the average Americans should be able to rely, and that's that whole issue about whether justice is air simply umpires calling balls and strikes or whether there is some agenda. My concern is that a leading scholar in the field of constitutional law has recently reviewed your writings and concluded that you demonstrate in extreme willingness and even radical willingness to revisit settled precedents..

Dont Mess With Notorious RBG: How to Fight For The Supreme Court
"To this week's on one with Angela. Arrived podcast. NATORI is a CB does not have the same notoriety as notorious RPG and what is really notorious is the Senate Republicans for trying to bulldoze the traditional Supreme Court nominations process. So we have assembled an all star legal panel today that also reflects how Supreme Court should look it probably also think here to break it all the way down like a fraction are Kristen Clark President and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Christopher. Kane. Chief counsel of demand Justice Ellie Misao justice correspondent at the nation and Tina Johnson President and CEO of times up. Hello everybody. Angela. Thank you so much for being here. So I want to start with giving honor where honor is due in. That is to start with Ruth Bader GINSBURG who we lost on September. Eighteenth. I feel like she held on just as long as she possibly could end for that I say thank you. To our BG to the to the real story is and I just wanted to give you all the opportunity to share some thoughts on route Baiter ins, birds passing on her impact in jurisprudence in which he wrote some phenomenal opinions including just two words, I dissent and you know anything else on your hearts to share about that because then we're going to get into the battle that is the Supreme Court nominations but I really WanNa give her some some time just do. Well, if you're a lover of justice than you definitely are feeling this, you're feeling the loss of Justice Ginsburg on the court right now having been inside the court was always great to see her in action. She was always an active questioner questioner always asking all of the tough questions and and really pushing. The. The Orleans before her. I also think though about Thurgood Marshall and what he meant for the court and Thurgood Marshall is somebody who dedicated his career to the practice of civil rights law when he was appointed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, and justice Ginsburg frank lease the only a second civil rights lawyer to sit on the court. So right now we're at a moment where there's that void that vacancy in terms of somebody brings that lens to the issues that come before the court. So for me that really matters because we're not getting that with this nominee has been put forward. I'm. Christian I agree with you completely, I mean this this her career even before she got on the court is astonishing in all of us who are working women who are women who can sign around credit card applications and hold a mortgage in our own name and pursue our careers including. Alexis. Johnson wrote this morning you know including the current nominee to the court. We are -bility to do that to repair Berg I mean she dreamed up the idea that the equal protection clause should cover women equally as we weren't in there we were you know the kinds of. Laws kept women out of the economic life of our country. Were not challenged until she had the foresights quite frankly and the legal ability to think that up and percents that and so even before she got on the court Mike Thurgood, Marshall's she had transformed landscape forever for all of us and my dog is Getting this okay. Tina go ahead see. My my story about Ginsburg is is a personal one. So I was in high school I was on trial and a week with states or nationals whatever and one of the guest judges was at school year. And then after the thing he he gave a talk for for the kids and we got to ask questions I asked him a question and answering made fun of. I I asked him how he squared his opinions about originalist. I didn't know what was called originalism. Downing intangible whatever. But how he's wearing those opinions. Brownie. Be Bored event, which was obviously against the original intent of the founding slavers. Yet like super important right and he laughed at me and then everybody else laughed and you're like I. Don't know what they're teaching school and everybody else. A bunch of jokes and then some like really not really credible answer I would later. So he kind of any make of me dismissing it is sat down kind of embarrassed son how GINSBURG heard this story? I am magid now that since they were friends was probably bragging. Point about how? Of. This seventeen year old or sixteen year old. But anyway she's GonNa Message to remark. That was held back. Kids they keep descending. which you know is again, I didn't even realize how awesome and amazing was. Sixteen seventeen year old kid. But it really to me goes to show that at even kind of social setting in A. In a private setting as it must have been for her earth the story. The her her commitment to raising credible questions and raising the sense not backing down She lived at right and she gave me a nice little note when I was a kid. To keep trying.
Fatima Goss Graves on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Legacy on the Supreme Court
"Look Grapes welcome to the podcast. Thank you. I'm glad to be with here. First of all, I want to congratulate you on winning this year is John W Gardner leadership? Award that's that's huge. Thank. You it came as. To tell you that came as a huge surprise to me, and it was kind of beautiful boost at a time where we could use it. So thank you I, appreciate that yeah. We don't get a lot of opportunities to celebrate a good thing so I wanted to mention that. Are you just feeling generally we feel like we've been going from you know one kind of bruising experience to the next every day there's something new and you know most recently we lost I'm justice GINSBURG. So I have to tell you that at some point in time and I don't know when that is I will process how I'm really really doing. But at days I am just geared up to fight. We I. Feel really disappointed that we didn't really get the time and space to truly honor Justice Ginsburg legacy to spend the time and space doing that over a period. But we are also facing a pretty existential threat around our democracy right now, and that's where my attention has to focus. Yeah, I. Remember you know that Friday when she passed in kind of thinking the same thing we were there were these two conversations going on right one about her legacy what that meant for. Women and this country generally and democracy, and what we're going to do about the crisis that you alluded to right I mean the truth is, is that we have to do something in relation to this nomination and this process which isn't really legitimate right so we're kind of morning and finding at the same time, which is really hard. It is hard. You know I like to think of it as in some ways we're fighting for her legacy and in her name you know she. Stood for Justice and equality she dreamed up a legal framework when the law had not yet recognized one and brilliantly advocated and led the Supreme Court to recognize the same. And even as recently as last terms, she really did the work of reminding the court what was important and so when when I think about how we have to galvanize over the next few weeks and how women in particular have to show up. Partly. I think will be doing it in her honor and we'll be doing it as a tribute to her legacy right and I think some of the energy that I felt I felt over the past week is a lot of energy from women kind of similarly to after the two thousand sixteen election and again in the two thousand eighteen during the two thousand eighteen midterms and we had the historic. In Congress, you feel the same thing like women are kind of energized to do something this election cycle you feel that again I do. I do and I almost wonder if people aren't syncing it in the way that I'm sensing an I am constantly getting calls in tax from women I know well and women I don't know very well asking what can I do on that to me is a sign that people are you know they have that they're not in their stomach and a feeling like they? Need to come out, come out around this election come out around the Supreme Court and so I I, wonder if everyone is considering bad in understanding and predictions about what's going to happen this fall one of the things I wanted to talk about was what her legacy means to you. Personally what it means to a lot of lot of women especially in the legal field and some of her most pivotal cases I was thinking through those do you have any that stick out to you as being I guess More pivotal or he'll be more impactful for women generally. Yeah. I mean she is obviously just a giant giant in women's rights giant in the legal field generally and. Did. That work at a time when it was unusual for women to even be lawyers at all

Examining the Record of Amy Coney Barrett as Nomination Fight Heats Up
"President Trump's nominee to the supreme court appeared at the White House over the weekend. Judge Amy Conybeare at pay tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who seat she is hoping to fill. Should I be confirmed Will be mindful of who came The flag of the United States is still flying at half staff and memory of justice. Ruth. Bader Ginsburg to mark the end of a great. American. Life. Justice Ginsburg began her career at a time when women were not welcome in the legal profession. But she not only broke glass ceilings she smashed them. But there are many ways their philosophies are quite different judge Barrett's legal career. We'll be under the microscope in the weeks ahead. So this is a good time to talk with our justice and judiciary editor, Vivica, Novak, Vivica good to have you here. To be with mark, I want to start out with the basics just who is judge amy, coney? Barrett and why are conservatives so enthusiastic about her nomination. She is a known conservative. She was a clerk for Justice Scalia and has often spoken of him very admiringly. She's been a lot professor Notre Dame and she has continued to teach while she has been on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago in general the anti-abortion groups feel very confident that she would be a vote in their favour whether she'd Overturn Roe v Wade is is unclear, but she is generally not a fan of abortion. Obviously abortion is getting a lot of discussion in this conversation, but this is a court that could. Rule on many different areas including health care even the twenty twenty election would her presence mean on the court? Well, she will be the person who gives the conservatives a six to three majority on the court, and even if Justice Roberts who has occasionally sided with the liberals even if he does that in the future on on certain cases, you know they will still have five votes, five conservative votes. So that's that's one important factor here. She will be probably not a vote in favor of upholding the affordable care act and that's one of the. First arguments. The court will hear it's coming up in November is a challenge to Obamacare and Justice Roberts a couple of years ago in another court challenge to the care he voted with the Liberals and she has actually said in a speech that she believes he voted wrong in that case in fact, he wrote the opinion she believes he was wrong. So that's one important issue coming up, and of course, the election none of us really wants to relive the two thousand election I don't think which was turned to the Supreme Court but it. Could happen it could happen, and if it does, you know there are some trepidation about the six three makeup of the court being certainly not in favor Joe Biden, we have election looming around the corner Republicans are moving forward planning to hold hearings the week of October twelfth in the hopes of confirming her before Election Day. So who will motivate more? How will this affect the election really good question conservatives generally in the past have been known to be more motivated by the prospect of putting more people on the federal courts including the Supreme Court. Democrats this time though are going to be framing things I think in terms of issues they're going to be talking about the affordable care act which most Americans are in favor of most Americans like it. They'll be talking to some degree about abortion probably not as much. They'll be talking about the election though and what could happen there. They will try very hard to peel off a couple of Republican votes. It's GonNa be tough hall, and Right now it looks like Mitch McConnell has. The votes and there isn't very much the Democrats can do about it. There may be a few procedural things that can slow things down, but it is really stretching to think that the Democrats I think could could slow this down, push it after the election, and then perhaps kill the nomination that's really pie in the sky. At this point it seems both parties feel a sense of urgency here as this is a lifetime appointment here and particularly her being so young, she's only forty eight. Could be on the court for a good long time and it's unclear. You know there are some other justices who are not that young but there are a lot who are actually not that old. So you know president trump has made it a point to name. People who have probably a good couple of decades at least on the court. Are Movements now to, for instance, put term limits on justices even if that were to make it through Congress and that's that's going to be hard to do. But even if were to make it through, even if a president were to sign it, it probably wouldn't apply to justices who are already on the court. It probably would be applied going forward. There are also people who talk about expanding the court. Some people call court packing that's kind of a derisive term, but expanding the court to add two more justices or more. That's really a tough lift but these things are being talked about more than we've heard in quite a long time. VIVICA Novak. Thanks again. Thank you.

"Vote him out a little different than what he's used to those rally audiences leading off our discussion. Tonight a John Heilemann national affairs analyst for NBC News and Msnbc He's executive editor of the recount and. Co Co host of showtime's Circa Stuart Stevens is with us. He's the former chief strategist for Mitt Romney's two thousand, twelve presidential campaign. He is. Now the author of it was all ally how the Republican Party became Donald Trump and Rene Graham's with us. She's an opinion columnist and associate editor of the Boston Globe Rene let me start with you and what you're hearing when you hear President say get rid of the ballots. What he's essentially saying is I'm going to cheat what he's saying is I don't think I could win any other way. So I am going to sabotage the election if it means that I have to get rid of the bows to do that, I'm going to do it. You Know Donald Trump isn't mincing words at this point he's literally done everything but Belle Tout Jennifer Holliday's and I'm telling you I'm not going. No matter. How much White House or his fellow Republicans try to walk back his comments. There's no reason to believe that he will commit to a peaceful transfer of power. If you lose the election, a stuart Stevens, give us a presidential campaign professionals reading of these polls tonight. Trump should lose It's pretty straightforward. You don't forget that broad industry why trump won trump voters trump really one reason Iran in a year which Republican could win forty six point four percent. Romney lost with forty seven point two percent. So even if every voter showed up for trump last time showed up again. It wouldn't be nothing likely. Why was able to win forty six point one because third party double that non white both declined for the first time twenty years. Now look around the country. Protest and Protest in their civil unrest in there their cross for justice. They're also get out the vote that. I think if been elections Tuesday, you'd have record non white vote across country and that's a disaster for trump and he knows. He's tractors generally not complicate. A John Hayman I think we're facing some journalistic challenges in discussing the president's new slogan and get rid of the ballots because there's that problem of as we talk about it. We are making it sound possible to trump supporters who might not have considered it before we're helping in some ways to deliver that message to trump supporters. Even, as we try to dismantle a what what the president is saying, he can do and show where where the strengths are in the actual governing resistance against this possibility. Lawrence. I hear that kind of thing all the time. Yeah. People say well, don't give any ideas trust me I. You can't get a lower opinion of Donald Trump's intellect and creativity than my opinion of it but I do know that the one thing is Z. is and is uncreative is these very, very interested in keeping hold power and he's been sending the message long enough that he plans to try to steal this election and he's saying it very directly. He's telling US exactly how he plans to do it that we should. All assume that given the Coterie of enablers that have surrounded himself with some of those people are very smart and they're very creative and they're very ruthless people like Bill Barr and others who work on his campaign. They are thinking about every angle. There's nothing that we could say on television that's not occurred to Donald Trump and his coterie of enablers and fixers, and the hacks around him who are trying to figure out all the all the ways, all the various ways they can go about ceiling us election, and I just think that. This is going to be a battle in the post-election period, a legal battle, a political battle, a battle of public opinion about potentially. involve. People protesting in the streets I. Think it's better for those who care about free and fair elections to have as clear a vision of what might happen in all of its ugliness so that they go into this battle for the principle of free and fair elections they go into armed intellectually armed I mean armed with awareness of just how far this president will go. I think there's a better chance of US having in the end a free fair and accurate outcome of the election if the people were fighting for it, know what they're up against listen to what Nancy Pelosi sent about this today. Now, we do know who he admires. He admires Putin. He admires come on he admires Erwan and Turkey. He admires people who. Are perpetuating their lead their role in government. But it remind him, you are not in North Korea. You are not in Turkey, you're not in Russia, MR, president, and by the way you are not in Saudi Arabia. You were in the United States of America. It is a democracy. Renee Graham. Now, we see where that admiration for dictators has taken him. We always knew it was coming to this. You know this isn't a surprise. No Donald Trump might not know what foreshadowing is, but he is an ardent student of it. He is always talking about these things because he has no sense of humor he's never joking. So when he was admiring Kim Jong or when he let. Air The from Turkey, have his bodyguards assault American protesters on American soil and said nothing about it. We already understood what Donald Trump wanted to be. Those are the man Donald Trump aspires to end those men hold power would iron fist, and that's exactly what he's trying to do the thing that's really nervous about so much of this if you think about. Lyndon Johnson on Air Force. One in nineteen, sixty three when he was sworn in as the thirty six president this wasn't just procedure. It was the let the American people know in for the world to see the constitutional continuity to show that an assassination will not send the nation's spiralling into political chaos and trump is promising chaos in November to believe otherwise is a whole bet stuart Stevens in the first of lawyer battle over the presidency, the Republicans won in two thousand. where, are the democratic? The Democratic Army of lawyers they they they going to be outflanked by this Republican Army of lawyers. Not I'm working with the Lincoln. Project. We're working on that front. I think that what trump does test people. And he's kept to billboard billboard. Do anything he wants. East testing Republicans and I thought for the most part responsible Republicans to what he said. Yesterday was very weak if you look at Mitch McConnell's. Statement was. We will have a transfer power to the person who wins. Trump isn't planning same. Put Me Power because I've lost he's planning reading our. Listen. When you work in politics, you have arts for a long time. You know it's pretty boring mostly blocking and tackling, but I really think. The next day down elected was dangerous since the civil war. John, how the the notion that the Democrats are ready to fight this I don't think has been made clear. Do they need to make a public presentation of what their strategy is? How what the League? Who the WHO's the legal team for the Pennsylvania case? WHO's the legal team for the Florida case? WHO's the legal team for.

The trump were is wanna play in November is a very helpful wakeup call to what should be an army of democratic lawyers ready to do battle with the trump is but if such an army of democratic lorries exists they have not. Publicly reported for duty and they certainly don't have a spokesperson. Like the Republican lawyers do the president of the United States saying get rid of the ballots. According to the latest polls, Donald Trump will have to get rid of millions upon millions of ballots because Donald trump is losing and losing big in the latest polls Donald Trump is running ten points behind Joe Biden on the latest national poll but more importantly, Donald Trump is running behind donald trump. In just about every state poll, you can find Donald Trump is polling behind were donald trump finished four years ago in most states, Donald Trump cannot afford to lose a single voter who helped him squeak out an electoral college victory four years ago and according to the polls. He has already lost millions of those voters tonight. A Fox poll shows Donald trump running behind where he finished in each state that they pulled four years ago Donald Trump won Pennsylvania. By less than one percent for years ago forty, four, thousand votes out of six point one million votes cast in tonight Donald Trump was running behind Joe Biden. Pennsylvania. By seven points, which is at least four, hundred, thousand votes possibly more than that because the voter turnout will be bigger. Donald Trump went Ohio four years ago by eight points since Donald Trump is running five points behind Joe Biden in Ohio Donald Trump knows he is losing voters in every state and he knows he is going to lose the national vote by several million votes and so for Donald Trump it all comes down to get rid of the ballots. There's really no choice for him. But it does present. Republicans with a choice. What a what do you do? About a presidential candidate whose only hope and only strategy is to cheat.

So at somebody who has literally canceled his own wedding I feel like I'm in a better position than most. That, what these people are doing main elsewhere is utterly irresponsible and. My opinion. Unforgivable. There's no. Thank you. Andrew Andrew I'm sorry that you had to cancel your wedding before you go. Have you thought about how to reschedule it or are you just going to wait? You know we thought about having one of these quote Unquote Mini Moni. That have become the trends with a smaller group. but the bottom line is we both have big families.

I was thinking about these mini mini Moni which I love that phrase I hadn't heard that before that term I talked to a wedding planner who said that people are having these little micro weddings or minimums. And asking guests to quarantine fourteen days ahead before coming to the wedding which I was thinking one hand guests were being saved a lot of time because of the pandemic because wedding used to now recently spread to two or three days with the before you know cocktails and after. Brunch and now it's just like down for three hours. But if you've got a quarantine with fourteen days ahead before going to an event that really put you know you're you really it guest Yeah, I think he's smart because people who do have the big families or want to celebrate in a certain way I.

Beth I'm going to start with you lots of Cova fatigue when it comes to gathering how how do you think we think about balancing between civil liberties and the need to be so social when it comes to this public safety question public health question. Right I think that's such a good question because what we're really seeing is that the importance of the social compact and growing anger when it's violated I was so interested to hear I. Didn't know that an eighth death has been linked to that wedding. It really makes me think about the couple desire to have a wedding but the anxiety were tech's that sometimes guests into a lot of people have been invited to any I don't want to go and the super afraid of going but they're all they feel like they're like the are you`re Signing on get smart, but they also don't want to hurt the couples feelings. I wrote a story while ago because I was just so I was really thinking about that wedding and how weddings are so surrounded by superstitions like groom is exposed to feed bride ahead of time and her dress, and if it rains of the good luck or bad luck and my God, what about when you start your life together with somebody and now eight deaths are late to that event I interviewed brides who spent their honeymoons just hoping not to hear from contact tracers. So. I think that the social contact is so important and also you can see the the. Really, the pressure on host now like how would you possibly hosted event? Worry? Not just the people didn't like food, but they might not even survive. So I mean that's a stark question bath but I think it's I. Know it's important right so let's turn to Dr. Doron.

So I wanNA know did that surprise you especially since Romney has been one of the senators, for example, during impeachment when he actually voted. Against The voted to impeach the president voted against the rest of the Republicans in the Senate. Right, right. He he He voted to impeach the President Yeah. It didn't surprise me. I mean at the end of the day. Romney is a conservative, and this is a key opportunity for conservative Republicans to push the court to the right. So I'm not really that surprised I mean impeachment was different because we were talking about. High crimes and misdemeanors of sitting president and don't forget that back in two thousand. Sixteen. Romney, was pretty blunt about what he thought of Donald Trump is a candidate calling him a phony and a huckster. So you know Romney has some principles, but they're conservative principles and a conservative Supreme Court seems to fit right in line with those principles.

Well, much of the same kinds of things I mean, he says that Senate leader Mitch McConnell. Should follow the precedent that he set back in two thousand sixteen when he wouldn't consider Obama's nomination of Garland McConnell said that let the election take place I because we were so close to election. So on Sunday Markey said that's what McConnell should do. Any told progressive organizers and activists that blocking trump's ability to add another conservative to the court is pretty important. Here's a bit of what he said think about this Supreme Court justice might, in fact, vote on whether or not Donald Trump get seated perhaps in a five to four vote as fraudulent activity is engaged in. Antiques. That's that's not a fantasy because we're called it back in two thousand, five to four Supreme Court decision ended the contested presidential election favor of George W Bush and market went further tweeting that if Democrats regained power, they should abolish the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court. Okay so those are strong statements. Those are strong claims what does it mean for him to suggest that and how are other Democrats reacting to it Well it's interesting. Elizabeth Warren by the way has also said the poor a court is an idea worth considering outgoing congressman Joe Kennedy said if McConnell holds a vote in two, thousand, twenty, we pack the court in two, thousand, twenty, one, it's that simple. So what it means is this it means passing a law that would expand the number of supreme. Court justices the constitution doesn't say anything. About how many justices have to be on the court so all it takes is a law and if Democrats win the White House and the Senate, they could do that..

"Hearing Richard Talk About Justice, Ginsberg's legacy is a powerful reminder of what the Law Chandu and of what our Constitution can do when rightly interpreted justice Ginsberg's life was entwined with the struggle to create equality via the guarantees of the law and the constitution she became while serving as a Supreme Court justice one of the keepers of the constitutional flame. And in that role, she not only made profound contributions. She also simultaneously assumed a national status that enabled her to inspire a whole new generation of young people especially young women. That said Richard also hinted that the cult of personality that began to grow up around Justice Ginsburg towards the end of her career may not have been altogether positives and he expressed a worry a worry that I share that it's possible the Justice Ginsburg choice to remain on the Supreme Court. At her untimely death while Donald Trump was president and the Senate was controlled by Republicans might turn out to have very troubling long term consequences for the Supreme Court, and hence for the Constitution itself. We will continue to cover the story of what happens in the aftermath of Justice Ginsberg's death. But for now, what's appropriate is for us to mourn her to appreciate her legacy and to value the tremendous contribution that she made to human equality here in the United States.

"About. Whether it's appropriate to think about institutions as being after they are made open to both men and women. And, this is connected to the brand of feminism. The justice. GINSBURG. which is sometimes called Sameness feminists. In some ways, it's distinct from a slightly later conception of feminism according to which women bring distinct experiences, distinct social attitudes, perhaps distinct viewpoints to a whole set of institutions and problems in the world. That's not how justice GINSBURG thaw. That's not how she wrote and it's not at all reflected in that opinion, she has no time for the idea of it introducing women to Vm, I will change the hazing the case I. Think I was the first method of education to her women can do whatever men can do including get nailed that in the face and yell at others. Yes including the University of methods because the argument was simply for equality of the sexes it's as simple as that. Yes. Men Than Women Women can be astronauts and basketball players and chemists just like man that is a call it was not. A claim. That society needed to be remade. In some other way than the inclusion of women on equal terms with men in the existing structures, I don't want that to sound more limited than it is in two ways. But I she did understand that some things about institutions had to change if women were going to be in them when she was first on the Columbia Law Faculty, there was no women's bathroom. So that's gotta change and I should also say we take so much of the. Success of that, waive the women's roofing for granted from the perspective of nineteen thirty respective Justice Ginsburg hood the idea that you could achieve that kind of sameness equality was nervously Levin, heavy lift. You know in the annals of human history, it is hard to identify movements for human liberation equality dignity that did more faster more successfully than that move, and yet it is also the case that by the time I knew her at the end of the nineties. Most feminist thinkers of the younger generation had moved past that they were thinking in terms of differences between men and women they were thinking in terms of more thoroughgoing kinds of change. They were more inclined to say things like the fact that vm has not been hospitable for women indicates that there's something wrong with institution like vm I in the way. that it does things in a vm I can't survive with many in it. Then maybe it's Ok the VMI doesn't survive. That's a kind of progress rather than thinking the goal is simply equality within the existing world of institutions. But again, I WANNA say though her perspective is certainly limited in this respect from the perspective of the generations that came after her. We should not underestimate the achievements that was entail in making her perspective successful enough. So as to seem like a thing that we needed to beyond. Last. Question Richard. A lot is about to happen and it's going to be very complicated. Any thoughts on how justice GINSBURG's own legacy and own views should inform the way we think and talk in the difficult days are coming. I wish they would. The horrible circus that attends all changes of personnel at the Supreme Court in our days is a bad thing for the republic. It's it's a symptom and a cause of bad things about our legal system in our constitutional system. Starting with the fact that the Supreme Court is such a symbolically sealions institution that gets people very very exercised and the fact that the justices are. We treat them as titled Nobility, in an in a mystical way, we treat them as vickers of the constitution. America is officially anyway. Maybe in reality, it's not a country founded on our common ancestry or said of ethnic traditions. America at its best and maybe reality is an idea. But exactly the same idea for everyone. And for most of us, the idea is linked deeply with the constitution as we understand it and the Supreme Court justices, I think it's very unfortunate thing superior court justices in our generation go through the row as the Constitution made flesh. And that means that the conflict of who they're going to be is just so deeply intensive exceeds the practical stakes of who controls the court and those practical stakes are too high or read. It's why I wish we had a system in which spewed just is rotated out of office on a regular schedule rather than just by happenstance of death or choice of retirement I. Think we'd be much better off but given that we are where we are. I wish very much even for reasons that I hadn't before that. The Republican Senate head confirmed Merrick Garland in two thousand sixteen, make your snow turn of historical story for you the Republican Senate. Says okay. Our Party control the Supreme Court for a very long time. One of the features of a constitutional democracy is eventually you have to take turns. In President Obama would've appointed garland and there would have been a small democratic majority on his court, it would have come at a really good time. Right. The trump administration would have been really an excellent time to have a small Democratic majority Supreme Court a bunch of things about how courts handle the trump administration or failed to handle the trump administration would have gone down a little bit differently and I don't think they would've gone down on a strictly partisan way if there have been five votes against the trump administration in trump versus Hawaii travel ban case or in a bunch of other cases that we can think of either six or seven votes and those things could've gone better and then. If everything else is the same imagine justice Ginsburg is at the end of the summer of twenty twenty. And is replaced by Republican appointee. then. There's much less reason for Democrats to feel that they've been cheated over and over again like we got ours and you've got yours and those are the rules if they ran basketball and now four years later we are where we were into the five four Republican majority of court. But just to say, the world of conservative lawyers would still have been ideologically much more the driver's seat in the Supreme Court Liberals, right. But for the short interlude. We would have gotten there without a lot of pain and a lot of recrimination that I fear is only going to get worse over the next several weeks. Richard thank you for sharing your experiences and your thoughts about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with me. Thank you more deeply for literally thousands of conversations that you and I have had about constitutional law over the years and I are having more of them with us some of them at your on deep background. Thanks for joining me. No, I'm delighted to have been here I am grateful.

"Ginsburg wrote that's a little bit like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you're not getting wet right her point being the reason that we don't see all sorts of horrible forms of race boater oppression is that we have the voting rights act and I was confident at the time that she was right And I am yet more confident. Now, how can not be that? She was right and so I think that warning you know will be something that constitutional lawyers will continue to hear. We'll be back in a moment.

That was the most significant one written by Justice Ginsburg when she was on the court and that was the my case involving the Virginia Military Ademi an all male military academy run by the State Virginia. Tell me about her opinion there and what you think was interesting and significant about it. So this was a case in which the Supreme Court decided seven to one Justice Scalia dissenting and Justice Thomas not participating. That the state of Virginia could not maintain VMI as an all male institution via by. A military academy. The played a very large role in the aristocracy rates, social, political, and economic of the State of Virginia, right if you graduated from. You were a real Virginia insider in a very thick and powerful network of Virginia insiders. And it grew out of a particular aristocratic tradition that fits with all those things. The question of course was whether via continue to do that given that it was a public institution and therefore bound by the Fourteenth Amendment, protection clause, and after the nineteen seventies when the Supreme Court began to say that equal protection clause meant among other things states can't discriminate however, they want to have sex. This was a real question. The thing that I think of as most instructive about just Ginsberg's opinion. In the case whose just how simple it is. Virginia had attempted to escape the need to integrate. VM. By creating different institution called Mary Baldwin College the idea was it was going to be like Vmi for women and it is equal but separate. which once upon a time was acceptable doctrine in the Supreme Court on race issues and the question was would be especially equal acceptable doctrine here on the sex issue and one of the things that the end was the undoing of separate but equal in the race context was the understanding that it wasn't really equal that is to say that the black schools were not as well funded and. Now's what we I in other ways did not provide the same level of education as the way schools. It was just farcical to pretend otherwise right the great Charles Black. Great Constitutional Law professor of his generation and a Texan all of his days famously wrote that when people insist on the idea that the schools are in fact equal, he could only deploy the sovereign prerogative philosophy which was laughter. And Justice Ginsburg said essentially the same thing about Virginia Attempt to dodge in this case. Nobody would ever confuse via by with Mary Baldwin College No, insult to Mary Bolton College, but it doesn't provide access to the same kinds of shared experiences and networks of power. That coming through Vmi does and that means a cat possibly be delivering equality to the people who go there and here I wanna see something. I will tell a short anecdote about wonderful that student of mine said once when I was teaching this case, the first line of the opinion Justice Ginsburg grow. Says I'm not going to be able to put it exactly for memory but more or less. It says that Virginia maintains an incomparable institution of higher learning the Virginia military. Institute. And I was teaching this case of several years after it was decided and I asked the students at what point in the opinion is this case over how far do you have to read to know how this case is coming out? I had in mind was I. Want the students to say well, in the first sentence, you described his incomparable the word incomparably all you need to know if it's it's COMET TO BE A mind. But if it's incomparable, it's not equal to some other thing. So that's what I was looking for and the students smile and sent to me in full voice. This case is over when it says Justice Ginsburg delivered the opinion of the court frank, which is, of course, the sentence before and I had because, of course, that's true and it's true next and truly the deep way. In the world where Ruth Bader GINSBURG can be appointed in confirm two Supreme Court. The world where there can be single sex institutions of power run by states for which we make an accept excuses is no longer the operative legal world. There is a theme that runs through that opinion and especially the parts that are responsive to justice Scalia dissent.

"I think it accounted for the slow manner I think that's completely right and I actually think that a different narrative could have been constructed for her as who really overcame with great effort. A really powerful shyness could otherwise in another prison have been genuinely billeting. I I. DO think that once the cult of the notorious RPG was created, there was no convenient place for that narrative to be put in. And I think. He was just read out of the documentaries and out of the mist making that surrounded her and I wanted to ask you actually about that of our BG myth making bid correspondent in time. Strangely, enough to the period of time when some court insiders were urging her to consider stepping down. Tell me how you as clerk thought about this cultivation and especially its relationship to the very delicate question which was being raised in public in print by some people as early as the very beginning of President Obama's second term of whether once it was known publicly did she had been diagnosed with several kinds of cancer she should consider stepping down so that the president could appoint someone liberal to replace her. So I sometimes feel that I knew justice. GINSBURG. Before she was famous by which I mean when she was merely a justice of the. Supreme Court right yet famous to us but not necessarily the whole world. That's a lot of fame for one lifetime to be a supreme court justice but not like it was later she was famous but she wasn't a celebrity. Exactly right that's the difference. In fact, we can go through one step further justice. GINSBURG is on the short list of justice throughout history who would have been major figures in American law even if she had never sat on the court. She already had that plus being justice, and yet the notorious RPG thing took it to a different level. In fact, just a suitor in his very brief publicly released statement that the Supreme Court released said she was one of the very few justices who achieve greatness before joining the court. Yeah. I, think that's true. Pretty much all Supreme Court justices are figures in American legal history, simply by virtue of having been, Supreme Court justices. But most of them are not major figures after the passage of a little bit of time there's a shortish list of people who are major figures the past little of Communism shortish list of people who would have been major figures had they not sat on the court so Thurgood Marshall Louis Brandeis Joseph Story Oliver Wendell Holmes, I'm not sure we could get to ten and I really doubt we could get to sixteen or seventeen. She's on that list right because of the career she had and the impact that she had before she came to the court. And yet the turn that the notorious RPG took took it to an entirely different level I have found reservations about that developments I felt a little bit bad about my reservations because I had great respect for an affection for the justice and there was a simple way in which was good for her and she was enjoying it and it was useful in some ways also for things that she represented and and it happened also in the wake of her husband's death. And she was incredibly close to Mardi her husband. He was a life force and I think that that did something for her. Also for all those reasons, it felt to me a little bit churlish to have reservations but I have reservations had reservations first of all because I don't like culture personality. Even when the people around whom they center are people who I like a lot and admire and share values with still don't make culture personality I think I can go back places. And I think they can affect the judgement self awareness of the person at the center of the cult. And I read about that. I was someone who worried for a long time that the justice would stay too long. Not Sometimes you talk about a judge sting too long what you mean is they can't do the work anymore I was worried about that. I was in touch with the justice including about illegal things a few times over the past year too, and she was just as sharp there she ever been. But I worried about her stink too long as a legacy matter because we live in an age quite unfortunately when the populating of the Supreme Court is a highly ideological thing would fought out at the most titanic levels of American politics. And I had fear for the fate of her legacy that you ran along the following lines. People always used to say that she was Thurgood. Marshall of the Women's movement. And in a way that was really apt description and my fear was that it would be only too true in the end. Because Maybe the single most consequential decision for the path of American law the Thurgood Marshall ever made was not to retire during the Carter Administration when there were people who said he should. And as a result of he's not retiring during hard administration when he see eventually filled by Clarence Thomas. And the difference over these last three years between Clarence Thomas Supreme. Court and someone who Jimmy Carter might have appointed has been a really big difference in American law and it's particularly bitter because you're Thurgood Marshall was giants of American law. If anyone gave his life successfully to making America a better place through the law, you like, how can Thurgood Marshall not beyond your the shortest of lists? And yet formal Jim Crow in the south would have ended without Thurgood. Marshall have taken a little bit longer. It might have happened a little bit differently. There have been more suffering unjustly of African. Americans. You know for for like some number of incremental years in the meantime, right? Not Diminish any of that but it's these were number. There were larger forces in play. and. It would have ended with or without him. The decision about winter retire. Didn't have to be that way that could have been different. And similarly. Worried. The Justice Ginsburg retread that path she was a very important figure in the coming of sex equality in the law. But she also had the self awareness to know that it would have happened without her when she said. So to me directly she said, she didn't want to me. She said, mostly I was born at the right time. Generation came where the law of sexy quality was going to have to change. And exactly, who would change it exactly how it was a matter of contingencies who's around and who steps up, and if it had not been Ruth Bader Ginsburg maybe would have taken a little bit longer maybe would happened a little bit differently but the big arc of history on that issue what look more or less like it looks. The decision not to retire during the Obama Administration more particularly during the Obama administration was a democratic Senate. Mealy, very large for a long time in the development of a lot of things in American law. In a moment, will transition to talking about the. The trajectory of where we're going but before we do one of the things that concert officers like you and like me try to do is that we try to. Figure out the legacy of justices of the Supreme Court. And.

"Richard thank you so much for joining me. Let's start with how you met. Justice Ginsburg for the first time, which I think must have been when you went to interview to be her locker. It was it was in the fall of nineteen ninety-seven. I was a third year law student. And I had been told that she was taking applications for. Two years out there that I would have been eligible to clerk and I I sent in materials and I was in my apartment in new haven and the phone rang and a woman identified herself as climb from Justice Ginsburg Chambers said she wanted to speak to me. There's the justice wanted to speak to you. Could I be available a couple of days later and I thought yes. Yes. I. And hopped on a train and I went down to. DC. And I remember. Going in in the marshalls, taking me to her chambers in meeting her clerks who interviewed me. And then I was told, the justice would see me and I walked into her own private office. And I was looking at one of the biggest office rooms hit ever seen and one of the smallest people I had ever seen inhabiting such an office and she had a very, very big smile from behind some very, very big glasses and it felt warm felt welcoming. I'd never met her before her and she was the most powerful person I've ever met but she made me feel that she was glad to see me we sat down and we talked for maybe twenty minutes. She was well prepared. She had read materials that I had submitted. And at the end of the time, she said with no fanfare as she was saying, don't forget your umbrella on the way out. She said, well, I'd certainly like your. I. Noticed that my voice slows down as I recall when she said because she was in very famously a very slow. I'm a slow speaker and she was a full tick slower than I am I'm Jay well. If If? It will work for you I'd you'll be very happy to have you here Kirk for me. And I thought yes. Yes. That would work for me a great deal and she shook my hand and gave me a little hugging sent me on my way and a year and a half later I moved down to DC to start the job. Can I ask you about the rhythm of that conversation I mean you mentioned the Justice Ginsburg spoke slowly that's a substantial understatement. I mean, I'm a fast talker in hot a slow talker. So maybe the difference Celtics even greater. But my experience of her was that I had never met anybody who spoke with such long pauses between that. She said. So how did the rhythm of the conversation because you're also a very rhythmic? So the rhythm of the conversation was slow as were all subsequent conversations I ever had with her. One of the clerks who talks to me before I went and gave me a piece of advice that I found very useful in which item past Onta other people who met the justice. Later he said I tried to work myself into a sort of Zen state. Before I talk with the justice slow way down. And take what comes as a comes wait. In that conversation, I practice that and then inseparable conversations. Slow your breath down. Wait if she. Pauses it doesn't necessarily mean she's done. It usually just means she's thinking give yourself. You know sort of a full for Mississippi, count after she's done to conclude that she's finished and then answer. What was that about? Why was just GINSBURG's speech styles so remarkable so unusual I mean you sent you thinking and there's no question that she was thinking. But she was extraordinarily brilliant woman and intellectually speaking extremely quick. So can't be a complete explanation. There was some other thing going on there. What do you think it was? It's true. She had a very quick mind the very quick. You know she would see four different things happening all the same time. But. It's a mistake to think that people who do that also don't get something out of pausing and thinking yet more. I think that's undervalues I do think that was happening but I think you're right it's more than that. and. I associate it with two things and it's very hard for me to know how much there's real salad here and how much this is just so story, I would be telling as a matter of associations, but I'll give these two associations. The first is Justice Ginsburg was extremely careful in all of her work. She could see the answer to a legal problem very fast but it's one thing to see the answer to the legal problem very fast and another to say, okay done with that you know not thinking about it more right moving on and another thing to say okay I've seen it. Now I'M GONNA make super sure stress tested four or five different ways I'm going to set it aside and come back to to make sure justice Ginsburg was very much in the latter category as a matter of working practices. She worked very hard long hours every day for hope sessional life as far as I know. And part of that was just a matter of industry and getting things done part of it was being extremely thorough and careful. And I've always associated that. With a fact about gender and the justices professional life, which is that she came of age as a prominent woman at a time when women knew that if they were going to be thought to be as good at what they were doing as the men around them, they had to perform flawlessly. We're the man next to her only had to perform well, you've got to do it cleaner. And better in no mistakes because if you make a mistake, you know the men around you will as a matter of confirmation bias see well, she makes mistakes but she's not really up to it. So she did not want to make mistakes and I think that whether that caused her to slow down. Or whether she naturally was a person who worked very very carefully there for she was able to do what was necessary I don't know right but I I think one of those, the other is a personality matter that I think is something that most people miss about the justice it took me several months of working with her to figure it out. I think she was very shy person. I realized only several months into clerkship that. So many of her behaviors lined up with that and I think it took me a long time to realize because she was the most powerful person I knew she was in charge. You know what did she have to be shy about in late in her life after the celebrity took over you know certainly, people don't think of that. But I think she was a strong person and I think she was a shy person who worked in came the shyness but.

"Justice ginsburg right some very powerful opinions what about her tos we don't see justice ginsburg writing a lot of ordos and again that probably has a lot to do with her personality but we do see justice ginsburg sometimes sign on to other justices orders in particular we've seen her sign onto a number of justice briars ordos regarding the death penalty and of course she did join his descent several years ago that really laid out the argument for why the death penalty as deployed now should be unconstitutional so kimberly the supreme court reviews about seven thousand to eight thousand new cases each term but they only agree to take up seventy of them so that is such a small amount are some of these justices also getting out their frustrations on certain cases that they wanted to take but no one else did well that that certainly could be the issue and actually we've seen the the court taking fewer and fewer cases over the last three terms they've only taken between sixty two and sixty three cases and so it's really getting an even smaller number so whether or not that ends up pushing up the number of ordos we see who knows well it would be it would be great to be actually in the room as they decide these but we'll have to take the ordos as the second best thing thanks so much kimberly that's bloomberg law supreme court reporter kimberly stoppage strawbridge robinson coming up on bloomberg politics policy power and law republican voters stand by the president as they prepare to take on democratic incumbents in november and the president has been tweeting about what he sees as victories in those elections day.

"Fec and justice ginsburg wrote the the courts majority opinion and she said that language means if you don't uh complained to the fec you're not covered by this law she also took a look at uh some some a senate report that you said backed up that interpretation and the supreme court's ruling on it was unanimous major federal protections for corporate whistle blowers what are the differences with the whistleblower provision in the sarbanesoxley act yucca the carbon barkley act passed before him and twenty two uh protect clearly protect people who uh whether or not they complained to the fcc said if you complain internally if you complain to congress i you're protected under sarbanes oxley uh that fed it now if you're gonna eventually try to to uh it doesn't give you as much protection that way so you have to underserved aimed oxley for paul complaint with the labor department you have to let that profit of uh uh play out um you you have less time to actually file a lawsuit than you would under doddfrank and the damage is that you get under sarbanes oxley are lesser than you get in doddfrank doddfrank lets you get up to double uh the amount of money you would have received in in salary uh uh sarbanes oxley provides less that nap so uh there's still a whistleblower protection is just not as much is this for corporations but no question it's a win it does make it harder for some people the food can require them to to more quickly um an through in general uh uh company the company side if happy today about this ruling i'll one reactor that i have seen though is that it could actually be counterproductive in some ways because it does give people an incentive to go directly to the sec and and not go through the internal compliance programs that make it at that.
