Justice Ginsburg Tamps Down Speculation

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg expects to stay on the High Court for a while, despite pressure in some circles for her to retire so that President Obama can replace her with another liberal.  Justice Ginsburg, in an interview with Yahoo! Global News Anchor Katie Couric, said, “All I can say is that I am still here and likely to remain for a while.”

In the same interview, Justice Ginsburg, who wrote the scathing dissent in the recent Hobby Lobby decision, noted she believed the Justices authoring the majority opinion had a “blind spot” in this ruling.
