(WEHT)- Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush released a statement Saturday following the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
In a year already marked by significant suffering and loss, the death of Justice Ruth Bader
Ginsburg hits especially hard. I join others in mourning the passing of a trailblazer, changemaker, and inspiration to many.
Justice Ginsburg’s work provided both men and women an opportunity to better their lives.
She was a hero to many of us in our legal careers, and a cultural icon outside the legal
profession. And her civility and genuine friendship with those who had differing opinions
show her as an example of a leader to model.
To those of us who emulate her, this is not just the loss of a powerful leader and
statesperson, but the personal loss of a mentor. We offer our condolences to her family and
share in their grieving. Justice Ginsburg’s memory should inspire each of us to effect
positive change in this world
