Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s top opinions and dissents, from VMI to Voting Rights Act

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday at the age of 87, surrounded by her family.Only the second woman to serve on the nation’s highest court, she dressed for decisions and dissents. She had a special collar, or jabot, for announcing majority opinions from the bench and another for her frequent, and more celebrated, dissents.Throughout her career, Ginsburg’s diminutive presence belied her titanic influence on the law, first as the nation’s preeminent litigator for women’s rights, and more recently as the leader of the high court’s liberal bloc, where she served as a bulwark against an increasingly conservative majority.Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissents were the subject of a 2016 picture book for children. (Photo: Simon & Schuster)Here’s a look at some of her memorable opinions:DecisionsUnited States v. Virginia (1996): Struck down Virginia Military Institute’s male-only admissions policy as a violation of the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. The vote was 7-1, with Associate Justice Antonin Scalia dissenting. Ginsburg described as “presumptively invalid … a law or official policy that denies to women, simply because they are women, equal opportunity to aspire, achieve, participate in, and contribute to society, based upon what they can do.”Justice Ginsburg’s most famous Supreme Court opinion opened the doors of Virginia Military Institute to students like Chih-Yuan Ho and Melissa Kay Graham, the first two women to graduate in 1999. (Photo: MANDI WRIGHT, Associated Press)Olmstead v. L.C. (1999): Ruled 6-3 that individuals with mental disabilities have the right to community-based housing under the Americans with Disabilities Act, provided that states have sufficient resources and treatment professionals say it’s appropriate.”Institutional placement of persons who can handle and benefit from community settings perpetuates unwarranted assumptions that persons so isolated are incapable or unworthy of participating in community life.”Friends of the Earth v. Laidlaw Environmental Services (2000): By a 7-2 vote, gave South Carolina residents standing to seek penalties for industrial pollution without having to prove injury, and even though the factory in question had closed. “A would-be polluter may or may not be dissuaded by the existence of a remedy on the books, but a defendant once hit in its pocketbook will surely think twice before polluting again.”Arizona State Legislature v. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (2015): Ruled 5-4 that states can try to remove partisan politics from the process of drawing political maps by creating commissions that take power away from elected legislators. “Arizona voters sought to restore the core principle that voters should choose their representatives, not the other way around. The elections clause, we affirm, does not hinder that endeavor.”Timbs v. Indiana (2019): Ruled unanimously that states cannot impose excessive fees, fines and forfeitures as criminal penalties. The decision made clear that the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against excessive fines applies to states and localities as well as the federal government. “The protection against excessive fines guards against abuses of government’s punitive or criminal law-enforcement authority. This safeguard, we hold, is ‘fundamental to our scheme of ordered liberty.”http://www.usatoday.com/”DissentsBush v. Gore (2000): Ginsburg and her three liberal colleagues each dissented from the court’s 5-4 decision halting the presidential recount ordered by Florida’s Supreme Court. The majority ruled that no better method of counting votes could be established within the necessary timetable.”The court’s conclusion that a constitutionally adequate recount is impractical is a prophecy the court’s own judgment will not allow to be tested. Such an untested prophecy should not decide the presidency of the United States.”Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. (2007): Ginsburg wrote the dissent in the 5-4 case, which denied Lilly Ledbetter the right to sue her employer for gender-based pay discrimination because of the length of time that had passed since the violation.Lilly Ledbetter receives a pen from President Barack Obama after he signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, two years after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg urged Congress to fix what she said was the Supreme Court’s mistake. (Photo: Mark Wilson, Getty Images)”Our precedent suggests, and lower courts have overwhelmingly held, that the unlawful practice is the current payment of salaries infected by gender-based (or race-based) discrimination – a practice that occurs whenever a paycheck delivers less to a woman than to a similarly situated man.”Gonzales v. Carhart (2007): Ginsburg wrote the dissent in the 5-4 case, which upheld a 2003 law passed by Congress outlawing a form of late-term abortion. The majority ruled that it was not an undue burden on abortion rights.”The act, and the court’s defense of it, cannot be understood as anything other than an effort to chip away at a right declared again and again by this court – and with increasing comprehension of its centrality to women’s lives.”Shelby County v. Holder (2013): Perhaps Ginsburg’s most famous dissent criticized Chief Justice John Roberts’ 5-4 ruling that struck down a key section of the Voting Rights Act, freeing mostly southern states from having to clear voting changes with the federal government.”Throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work to stop discriminatory changes is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet.”Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores (2014): Ginsburg wrote the dissent in the 5-4 case, which determined that family-owned and other closely held companies cannot be forced to offer insurance coverage for certain birth control methods they equate with abortion.”Approving some religious claims while deeming others unworthy of accommodation could be perceived as favoring one religion over another, the very risk the Establishment Clause was designed to preclude. The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.”AutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideRead or Share this story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/18/i-dissent-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburgs-most-memorable-opinions/2661426002/Find New & Used CarsNew CarsUsed CarsofPowered by Cars.com

Alberta identifies first likely case of COVID-19 transmission within school | CBC News

Alberta has identified its first likely case of COVID-19 transmission within a school, the province’s top doctor said Friday. The second case at Edmonton’s Waverley School was likely transmitted from another individual at the school who has tested positive, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta’s chief medical officer of health, said at a news conference.Hinshaw said both individuals were infectious within the school and that one of them “seems to have been the source for the other. Although it is difficult to say with 100 per cent certainty where transmission happens, given the facts in this situation, it seems to be a likely situation.” Transmission within a school “was not unexpected and is not a cause for alarm,” Hinshaw said. “However, I know many are anxious about school safety and I felt it was important to share this information with you and to talk about what it means.” Waverley School is a public elementary school in the Kenilworth neighbourhood in southeast Edmonton. Last year it had about 170 students. Waverley School in Edmonton is the first in Alberta likely to have a case of COVID-19 transmission within the school. (Trevor Wilson/CBC) Edmonton Public Schools said about 12 students from a combined Grade 1/2 class and seven staff members will now  isolate at home for 14 days, monitor for symptoms and be tested. “It was expected. I just didn’t expect it to happen maybe so soon. This is the first school for it to happen to in the province and it’s my kids’ school,” said parent Vanessa Kelly. “We’re not even a month in and I want to pull them out now.” School board officials said the school has been thoroughly cleaned and they’re confident their back-to-school plan is appropriate for now.  “We knew as we prepared to go back to school that there would be COVID-19 cases at our school,” said Nancy Petersen, managing director of strategic district supports with Edmonton Pubic Schools, at a news conference Friday.    “We are simply a microcosm of the broader Edmonton community and right now in Edmonton, we continue to have cases of COVID-19. In fact, we have very high numbers right now so we knew that we would also have cases in our schools.” Hinshaw, seen here updating the public about COVID-19 earlier this year, said Friday the case ‘is not a cause for alarm.’ (Jason Franson/Canadian Press) Hinshaw said that as of Friday morning, 78 individuals attended school while infectious with COVID-19. She said 57 of Alberta’s 2,415 schools have reported having one or more of those infectious cases. She said that to date, none of the cases that have been reported as being infectious while in a school have been sick enough to require any kind of acute care treatment. “None that I know of have been in hospital or in ICU.”   ‘Shaming and blaming’ Hinshaw said cases of COVID-19 in schools can lead to “shaming and blaming,” which in turn causes anxiety for people in the school community. When two cases at Lester B. Pearson High School in Calgary earlier this week prompted officials to declare Alberta’s first school outbreak, Hinshaw said the school received quite a bit of attention and there were “lots of people implying that people who attended that high school weren’t safe to be around or that the school itself was perhaps a bad environment.”  Similarly, when St. Wilfrid elementary in Calgary was put under a watch, she said that officials “did still hear reports of the stress and anxiety in parents and students.”  Despite Waverley School having the first likely case of in-school transmission in Alberta, the people in the school community “are no different from anyone else,” Hinshaw said. “They’re doing the best that they can. This just happens to be the first place where this transmission happened. It doesn’t mean the school is bad or wrong, and the people who attend this school should not be treated as if they themselves have done something wrong.” The danger with what she called “this tendency to point fingers” is that people may choose not to get tested or to disclose symptoms.  “If COVID-19 goes underground, and we’re not able to understand how it is spreading, it will cause more harm. I really want to advocate for the collective approach to support and encourage each other and when we identify where an error is made, we do our best to address and move forward.” On Friday, the province reported 107 new cases, making 1,424 active cases, and one additional death. An Alberta Health spokesperson said a woman in her 50s from the North zone is dead. Her death is not linked to any outbreak.  The regional breakdown of active cases is: Edmonton zone: 711 Calgary zone: 450 North zone: 197 South zone: 38 Central zone: 24 Unknown: 4
