WASHINGTON (KWTX) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died, according to several media outlets.
She was 87.
Ginsburg died at home, surrounded by family, CNN reported.
She had been battling metastatic pancreatic cancer.
From what I can see, Barbara Lagoa is expected to uphold Roe V Wade. Getting rid of Roe V Wade wouldn't even end abortion except in some states. The bar is SO LOW we cannot even return to the actual purpose of the 10th Amendment when it concerns the ritual mass murder of innocent babies. Furthermore, the right has now completely abandoned meritocracy and morality like the left - which woman or minority will be the most liked - is more of a concern than who will try to uphold God's law. I don't think “the right” can even be called such except in direct comparison to the American left.I'm hearing that it will be Barbara Lagoa.
She's been an appellate court judge since 2006, became Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court in January 2019, 2 weeks later was named to the presitigious federal 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
That's a remarkably short time to have been a federal judge. I hope Trump knows what he's doing and this isnt another Roberts.
Interestingly, she represented (unsuccessfully) the (U.S.) family of Elian Gonzales who were trying to prevent Janet Reno and Bill Clinton from returning him to Communist Cuba.
Barbara Lagoa, a frontrunner for the open Supreme Court seat that President Donald Trump is pushing to fill, has made her conservative views known in business cases and disputes over the limits of executive power.www.reuters.com
Logoa is out.Fox news reporting that Trump has whittled his list to 5 names. Only 3 of those names are known (guessing the other 2 were men and weren't leaked for that reason):
Barrett is 48, Lagoa is 52, Rushing is 38, and it is unclear the age of the president’s other potential nominees.
President Trump on Monday said he has narrowed his list of potential Supreme Court nominees to fill the seat held by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to five people and vowed to announce his pick by Friday or Saturday.www.foxnews.com
According to Emerald Robinson and her Twitter account (not saying she is wrong but that is about as legit as some crazy old porch lady who hangs out on the stoop all day)Logoa is out.
