Each week, the Appellate Advocacy Blog Weekly Roundup presents a few tidbits of news and Twitter posts from the past week concerning appellate advocacy. As always, if you see something during the week that you think we should be sure to include, feel free to send a quick note to either (1) Dan Real at DReal@Creighton.edu or on Twitter @Daniel_L_Real or (2) Catharine Du Bois at DuBoisLegalWriting@gmail.com or on Twitter @CLDLegalWriting.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on September 18 and was honored this week in Washington, D.C. She was the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court and served 27 years as a Justice. And, she was the first woman ever to lie in state at the US Capitol. Her legacy as a respected lawyer, jurist, and social justice icon has been detailed in countless news items and articles, including at SCOTUS Blog, which includes a series in tribute. For other tributes and coverage see The BBC, The New York Times, NPR, and The Washington Post.
While there is undoubtedly other appellate news this week, in honor of Justice Ginsberg, I'll leave the other news to next week.
