"Do you know what a judge is or a lawyer. Judges and lawyers are jobs. People have where they work to make laws laws are used to keep us safe and keep order in the world but sometimes laws are made that are unfair and sometimes new laws need to be made to help people be treated equally in this episode. We will talk about one of the most important people in the fight for women's equality. Ruth bader ginsburg. Ruth was born in brooklyn new york in nineteen thirty three when she was born. Her name was actually joan ruth bader but when she was in first grade there were many jones in her class. Her mother told her teacher that everyone could call her ruth instead so from then on joan bater was called ruth. Her parents were hard working but they were not rich. They were jewish and brought her to the synagogue or jewish temple regularly to study the torah or the jewish holy book. From a young age. Ruth was annoyed to learn that women were not allowed to read from the torah. only men. She was unhappy that she was treated differently. Ruth mom was very independent. Woman independent means to do things on your own. She was very close with ruth and taught her that it was important for ruth to get a good education and to be independent two. She took a close interest in her education. Although her mother had gotten excellent grades in high school she had finished when she was fifteen and wasn't able to go to college instead. She had to work in a clothing making factory to help pay for her brother to go to college instead. Ruth's mother wanted to help her get into the college and studied to become a high school history teacher. Ruth like studying with her mother and it helped her to excel or do really well. She was also inspired by what her mother had done for her brother. Working in a factory to help pay for his education was an act of selflessness. That stuck with ruth. An act of selflessness is something that someone does to help another person without any thought of what it will do for themself. Ruth were very hard in high school and got excellent grades. Sadly her mother got sick with cancer when she was in high school and died the day before ruth graduated ruth had studied so hard and gotten such good grades that she got into cornell university..

Amy Coney Barret Tilts The Balance in Divisive Ruling
"A lot for being with us on this day after Thanksgiving. It was right before Thanksgiving late Wednesday. When the U. S Supreme Court The majority said, even in a pandemic You can't put away the Constitution. Now. In New York governor Cuomo says that he issued these restrictions on places of worship. Based on science. And safety. And so this is a fascinating ruling. In many regards number one. It's a big plus for religious freedom. Number two. It was just this past summer. That the Supreme Court ruled basically the opposite. In a case and there's some other cases that are being considered. I believe some cases California, New Jersey, Louisiana, So this is all about the Supreme Court blocking New York's governor from enforcing 10 and 25 person occupancy limits On religious institutions. Courts, the restrictions would violate religious freedom. And are not neutral because they single out houses of worship or especially harsh treatment. Or said there's no evidence that the organizations that brought the lawsuit have contributed to the spread of cove in 19. And this was one of those 54 decisions. With Chief Justice John Roberts. Going along with Justices Stephen Bryer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. And in their descent. Chief justice. Roberts said he saw no need to take this action because New York had revised the designations of the affected areas. Governor Cuomo essentially Said the same thing. Nevertheless, the Supreme Court did rule on it and also in the sending opinion. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said this unlike religious services, Bike repair shops and liquor stores generally don't feature customers gathering inside to sing and speak together for an hour or more. She went on to say justices of this court play a deadly game in second guessing the expert judgment of health officials. About the environments in which a contagious virus now infecting a million Americans each week. Spreads most easily. Those are the words and the dissenting opinion from Justice. Sonia Sotomayor, your Down the majority, and this may be the new power five and this is one of the key developments out of this ruling. A new power five on the Supreme Court. Barrett Gorsuch. Thomas Alito. And Cavanaugh. Three of whom, of course, were Appointed By President Donald Trump in the Majority opinion. Justice, Gorsuch said this, he noted that Governor Cuomo had designated among others, the hardware stores acupuncturists. Liquor stores and bicycle repair shops as essential businesses. That were not subject to the most strict limits. Like these places of worship work. Gorsuch said. We may not shelter in place when the Constitution is under attack. Things never go well. When we do So it Zbig deal for the Supreme Court. It's a big deal for I mean, let's face it all those evangelicals that voted for President Trump. They've got to be doing a victory lap today, right?

Virus related restrictions on churches in California and Nevada. At that time, the Chief Justice John Roberts, Joined the courts Democratic appointees, which of course, then included Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And those rulings they stress that state and local governments required flexibility to deal with a dangerous and evolving pandemic. So The New York Times, Right said. This is just One example of how profoundly President Trump Has transformed the Supreme Court. This New York Times P, says Justice Bharat Help the chief justice of body blow. Casting the decisive vote in a 5 to 4 ruling. On religious services in New York. And New York Times says this is most certainly a taste. Of things to come. About this 51283605 90 here on Caleb E. J. It is an interesting question, right? In the summer time. Even the Supreme Court said, Look You may not like it when these local officials are trying to close the church. But You're dealing with health and safety issue. And there are rights. Given to local officials in the event. Of health and safety issues. Well, not in this case, the governor there in New York, Andrew Cuomo. He criticized the Supreme Court. Or overturning their restrictions. He said It was Morrell Astrit Ivo of the Supreme Court than anything else. He called the ruling irrelevant. Said it would have any practical impact because restrictions Are not in place and had been dialed back well. You know, it's interesting that even in the Opinion.

President Trump's new Appointee, Justice Amy Cockney, Barrett, was in the majority on the decision. It's a shift from two previous cases in Nevada and California this year, when Barrett's predecessor, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was on the court. That's news nations. Geez Aggie reporting. The court's action won't have any immediate impact since the two groups that sued as a result of the restrictions.

Supreme Court Rules New York Cannot Limit Attendance At Houses Of Worship Due To COVID-19
"Some religious groups in new york are celebrating last night's rare late night. Supreme court decision blocking an executive order from new york governor andrew cuomo that restricted attendance at religious services in their neighborhoods because the pandemic ultra orthodox jewish organizations in brooklyn and queens and the roman catholic diocese of brooklyn claim. That cuomo single them out. The state pointed to the recent spike in covid nineteen cases. And then there was that alarming ultra orthodox wedding last week. The two hundreds not wearing masks. The court's decision was five. Four with its newest justice emmy coney barrett considered the fifth vote. Emily brazilan staff writer at new york times magazine and fellow at the yale law. School is here emily. Thank you for taking a break from your thanksgiving thanks. You are welcome. Glad to be here. And we should say the to litigants the ultra orthodox jewish groups and the catholic diocese were already not subject to these restrictions. Because they've been lifted there's a color system for restrictions in new york and Cova cases had obey abated in their area. But what was the argument from the court in blocking even targeted restrictions. Well the corpus arguing that new york hadn't shown that less strict measures would be enough to protect public health. Which is a pretty cursory kind of way of thinking about this. You can see the concur. Ince's by justice gorsuch as justice cavanaugh. That some of the conservative judges didn't like the idea that essential businesses which were permitted to open a new york included stores but did not include houses of worship. And i think the odd thing about the majority's analysis here is what it's comparing so the majority behaves as if people going to stores are the same as people congregating in a house of worship even though it's very unusual in store for lots of people to be sitting together or certainly singing or chanting together for a long time. That's all in a church or synagogue or a mosque and we know that that is a riskier activity. So there was no discussion of the science or scientific public health considerations in the majority's opinion. And what about chief. Justice john robertson. The three liberal justices dissenting. What did they say. Well chief justice. John roberts says there's no reason for us to decide this right now for the reason that you gave earlier new york had a lift these restrictions for now because the krona virus spread is not as bad in the city so these restrictions said that in the red zone the highest risk new york. You could have ten people in a house of worship in the orange zone. You could have twenty-five people but the catholic archdiocese in the docks synagogues that have sued. They no longer are subject to those restrictions and so she's jeff roberts was making a kind of traditional conservative judicial modesty Moved here in which he said. Look if they're subject to these restrictions again maybe they will be proved to be unduly harsh but at the moment. They're not so we don't need to step in here. And this is a classic example of a judge saying you know what. Let's leave this in the hands of public. Health officials not have judges step in to make these decisions. Unless it's absolutely necessary will be clear. What does it mean. I mean be clear. Only because i'm not able to figure this out. Temporary decision made on an emergency basis by the way when ruth bader ginsburg was on the court roberts sided with the liberals and the decision was in favor of restrictions that was when california had restrictions in place. So obviously there's been a tilt here but what does this mean for other states for new york when it comes to restrictions on houses of worship in the pandemic y- i'm kind of scratching my head about that too. I mean it looks like what the court is saying. Is that if you have businesses open you have to treat churches and other houses of worship just like those businesses but without paying attention to the greater risk that the church that you know religious service can entail and that's very strange to me because it seems so at odds with the science and what we know about the spread of coronavirus. And so you're right. This is a decision. That's a temporary restraining. Order against new york. The merits the kind of larger case is still to be thrashed out the lower courts and so one hopes going forward that there will be more attention to these apples to apples. Comparisons and figuring out what the state really needs to do to protect public health and mall many have seen the video from the acidic wedding in brooklyn this month. Hundreds packing a synagogue. No-one wearing masks mayor. Bill de blasio said or organizers will find fifteen thousand for violating restrictions. And so we're keeping an eye on that to see what happens. There might be any kind of consideration of
Amy Coney Barrett sworn in at White House ceremony
"Night Amy Coney Barrett became the 9th United States Supreme Court Justice in one of the most partisan displays of power. We have witnessed in the past few decades Republicans use their political majority to force Barracks confirmation before election day. So far sixty million votes have already been cast in the 2020 election embarrassed nomination process was one of the fastest ever for Supreme Court nominee lasting a little more than a month after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Barrett answered less than 20% of the questions posed to her during her sneering leaving many Americans unclear about how the new Justice might lean and frustrating Democrats who remember how President Obama scotus nominee Merrick Garland wasn't even granted a hearing the current team was the culmination of nearly four Decades of work on reshaping the court Mitch McConnell starkly said this on Sunday a lot of what we've done over the last four years would be undone. gamer later by the next election won't be able to do much about this. for a long time to come
Amy Coney Barrett sworn in as Supreme Court justice
"Judge Amy Coney. Barrett is now Justice Amy Coney Barrett Justice Clarence. Thomas swore her ended a White House ceremony last night. Start. Off. I am. Berry took the oath of office hours after the US, Senate voted largely down party lines to confirm her on this vote the as fifty to the Naser forty-eight, the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett of Indiana to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States is confirmed as expected. One GOP senator broke with Republicans that was Senator Susan. Collins of Maine Democrats were lockstep in opposition the forty eight year old Barrett fills the seat vacated by the late Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG or confirmation likely gives conservatives on the high court a five to three advantage over the courts liberal wing with Chief Justice John Roberts serving a swing vote on many issues.

"Democrats will boycott The committee vote for Amy. Call me Barry. It's a Supreme Court nomination.

Democratic senators on the panel have been discussing how to protest the GOP's plan to confirm Barrett next week to the seat held by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Senate.

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS
"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both

"Lessons on Friday afternoons now and every week it's a mad scramble to wrap up my work, grab his racket bottle and sneakers and get both kids out the door. Then back home an hour later for Chabad, dinner. So tennis will be on our minds. My daughter Rose is itching to play with her brother and when she's old enough, we'll give tennis a try. In New Jersey, where we live Ruth Bader Ginsburg happened to play a small role in making sure rose can play tennis one of the many stories about our legacy. This week included one by New York Times sports writer Andrew Kay. He tracked down Abby. Selden of Cape Cod. Massachusetts. Who at the age of fifteen nineteen seventy-two sued officials with the State of New Jersey and her high school in Teaneck because there was no tennis for girls no girls team not co ED team. No tennis girls. When her family contacted the ACO, you the organization connected her with a young rutgers law professor and volunteer who had just co founded the ACLU's women's Rights Project Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She had a colleague represented the family in a lawsuit charging depth. The rules barring abby and other girls from competing alongside boys violated the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. Over time the State of New Jersey agreed to allow girls to try out for boys, teams, and the lawsuit was dropped doors across the state swung open for young female athletes. But sadly, things didn't get easier for abby. She joined the team just as she had hoped to. But the boys were cruel and faced no consequences for that cruelty during a team workout. One of them caused her to tumble down a flight of stairs leaving her bruised and unwilling to go back. It didn't stop her from playing. She fought for and won a scholarship to Syracuse and became a certified tennis pro at age twenty, one as sixty, four with two titanium knees she still plays today. Now, what struck me about Abbie's recollection is that she's pretty sure she and RPG never met in person they shared four long phone conversations and even though she only remembers bits and pieces what she does remember is the encouragement and the reassurance from the kind soft spoken woman on the other end of the line who was fighting for her. Now Max's started first grade and his teacher sends several emails a day to communicate with the students and their parents. The tagline on those emails is the famous Maya Angelou.

"Exactly, right and I should also say that you know the very first sex discrimination case that she handled her husband actually brought to her attention. Gregory was a tax case involving a guy who couldn't deduct the care of his aging mother under the tax code. But if he'd been a woman, he could have and the two of them took that case together he did it from the tax perspective and she did it from the sex-discrimination perspective. You all touched on it in the film but during. The election season in the runup to November twenty sixteen. Ruth Bader Ginsburg made some uncharacteristically harsh comments about candidate then candidate Donald Trump. Says back in July of two thousand sixteen. She told The New York Times quote he is a faker. He has no consistency about him. He says, whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that. Job also said quote I can't imagine what this place would be. I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as president she later had to apologize for those comments it was. Thought by many that she stepped out of bounds and as a supreme, court justice should not have said, those kind of things about someone that could be president. Nina. How much how out of line was it? I remember when it happened and I said this feels weird and if that were to do it, it was out of line and it wasn't and she did it more than once in the space of three days I think she did it three times. Why did you do it? I? Have No. Idea is inappropriate after the the first time she did it, it didn't seem to get much attention it but once it was on the front page of the New York Times, Cub whom and she knew she'd made a mistake she made an apology. But of course that prompted Donald trump than I guess it was candidate trump to call her a loser. WHO's lost it and all kinds of other things but it was it was a mistake and there's no way you can take back a mistake like that except to apologize does it tarnish her legacy? No I don't think. So if she had kept it up, it would have. I. Think. You know for Julian Betsy. How much did she talk about that moment and what did she say was her mental calculus going into it. Well she after she did apologize she basically said I think it would have been best. SAID NOTHING and so she wasn't really going to elaborate. We did ask her about The idea that that somehow disqualifies her from you know sitting on cases involving the current administration and she was very forceful in saying if anybody thinks that who I might have voted for as president is going to affect the way I, do my job in interpreting the laws they do not understand how the UT basically how I work and how the judicial system works. Yeah. Yeah. You know I wanNA talk about. The notorious are BG's place in the culture right now you guys hit on it towards the end of the film but. This woman who has for her entire life been intellectual and quiet and focused is now at eighty five, a bigger star than she's ever been. Why why now and why her it's she's in a very unique moment that seems. Surprising. Yeah we think that it began in two thousand thirteen with Shelby County case. That cases? Where the Supreme Court McCarthy ruled that certain oversight of voting in states which had a history of discrimination against African Americans could be loosened because our country has changed and she wrote a stinging dissent in which she said taking away these protections is like getting rid of your umbrella in a rainstorm just because you're not getting wet..

It's a very it's so interesting because she's always so calm and self possessed but she said she didn't eat lunch that day because she hers argument was the first one after lunch and she was afraid she'd throw up in the courtroom sheet lunch.

And I am trying to learn everything I can learn about the court, and of course, I know next to nothing and there's this brief and it's I guess what seventy two and argues it's it was the first sexist rumination case to go to the Supreme Court and it argues that women are covered by the fourteenth amendment guarantee of equal protection of the laws. Now, this is a post civil war constitutional amendment, and so I I didn't really understand why this would apply to women why wouldn't apply to you know it was enacted for the freed slaves. It's to hear you say that because I hear equal protection now into me in my mind, it applies to everyone and everything, but it didn't during. A that's what I thought. So I, go I, call her up this I.

They began in Nineteen seventy-two when Ginsburg signed on as the founding director of the ACLU's women's rights project. She began serving as general counsel for the Organization in Nineteen seventy three. At the ACLU GINSBURG argued over three hundred gender discrimination cases, six of which came before the Supreme Court. She won five of them..

University they were undertaken to present the rules on civil procedure in several European countries and loose and my father went off to The Swedish part of the project? Do you have any memories of her from the time. My memory is of a person which was very serious who was very eager to do live work. And who was very interested in the way we in Sweden arranged the way Eh that women. Interestingly, Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke some years later and said that her eyes were opened up in Sweden for the first time. She saw law school classes where a quarter of the students were women.

Experiences from Harvard and Columbia women were minority and was a fighting minorities. I was studying law in Sweden that time. That were not very many quality questions involved in studying.

There were rules that women could do X. or Y. Women couldn't. Serve on juries women women couldn't be executors of wheels. If there was a man was contesting in the law embodied discrimination against women in very fundamental and explicit ways, and she was sort of steadfastly knocking them down and they would be a women in the law conference where all of us twenty somethings would go and and she would be the keynote speaker.

"Person who? Captured the imagination of. My daughters. And a lot of women in this country simply because. She stood out as somebody who believed in something bigger than herself. She taught at Columbia loss off school. She was a leading. Attorney for the ACLU's women's rights project. She did all this while raising. Two children. Of that during a time when she was litigating cases before the United States Supreme Court. Mind you that an attorney who peers in front of that court rarely. Does full time in. That's their whole business. There aren't very many of those lawyers. Around. A May argue two or three maybe four cases a year in front of the United States Supreme. Court. So the complexity and nature of the cases that she was preparing for required enormous amounts of research. Leaf of Fester wrote in an article for courts.

Called Vision and action. We can join hands with others like mind. candling lights along paths leading out of the terrible terrifying darkness. May those lights guide us through the coming days? Another thing that Ruth Ginsburg believed in was not taking yourself too seriously. She was not up above appearing at mock trials for Shakespearian characters she loved opera and actually appeared at one point on stage in an opera but she did not put anything ahead of her work including three broken ribs. Lastly one of her principals was. You're never too old for fish net. Enough said. So. With all of that. It's hard not to celebrate the life. Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg she is one of those Americans that will live on in history and her legacy will be bright. Sad to see her go.

"Democratic president now that she hasn't should we reconsider that question? Yes, I mean look I think it's If you think about Justice Ginsburg own life work and what she cared about him in particular gender equality. I mean, this was what animated her from the time she was in law school and maybe earlier she wanted women to have the same opportunities as men. She wanted men to have an expanded scope of possibilities in front of them to she wanted the strictures of traditional gender roles to be loosened in America. So when you think about all of that and you know also she was a huge champion for voting rights for the voting rights act for the notion that making sure that people of color have equal political power and chance to vote in this country that was a huge. Motivating force for her and the Shelby County decision in two thousand, thirteen. All of that is at risk now, and so in hindsight I think it's clear that it was a mistake that she didn't leave the court earlier. I wrote a piece. I can't remember what year it was years ago making the argument that everyone yelling at her to get off the court was not going to work. She was an indomitable spirit, right I mean incredibly strong determined woman and that's how she got to where she was. It also meant they think that she made this rail mistake of judgment in refusing to leave, and I think you're right that she bet on Hillary Clinton winning the election and of course that didn't happen and so there's always going to be this kind of. An. Unintended aspect of her legacy that is going to. It just it's going to depend what happens next right in terms of whether the gains that she cared so much about whether we're waiting to get to keep that or not the the to that was you wrote it in December of twenty thirteen. Stop telling Ruth Bader Ginsburg to retire. It's counterproductive. Read the last graph the justices could give us the gift of regular turnover themselves by agreeing to adopt voluntary term limits no constitutional amendment necessary. But that would take the unanimous collective action from a fractured group of nine on perhaps the most personal issues of all their own work lives. It's another dream that won't come true. But at least it makes for better holiday conversation than liberal complaints about Ginsberg's determination to stay put I almost. Want to leave on a more humane note. So we do that. Do you think her greatest? Her greatest legacy is in the laws she wrote what she represented, who she was two other female lawyers and justices where will we and how will we remember? I mean her greatest legacy is just tremendous strides that women have made toward equality since she was a little girl growing up in Brooklyn, we just live in a different world where. You know everything isn't perfect but women have so many more opportunities we believe in ourselves so much more I think collectively than we did then and that's what she wanted for us. So her legacy is her granddaughters. It's all the people who dress up as her and I'll halloween it's the way she became a feminist icon because she cared so much about that kind of dream and opening those doors for people..
