STATEMENT OF THE INSURED RETIREMENT INSTITUTE ON THE PASSING OF JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG

Posted on September 21, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) is saddened by the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We extend our sincere condolences to her family, friends and colleagues who mourn her loss.

Justice Ginsburg will be remembered for her thoughtful and persuasive influence in the pursuit of gender equity and equality throughout her distinguished career as a jurist and her work as a tireless advocate for gender rights before joining the Court. She authored many historic opinions that changed the law of the land and helped to shape later advancements in constitutional protections for those who have faced discrimination or been disadvantaged. She truly embodied the promise of the phrase adorning the Supreme Court itself, “Equal justice under law.” Her legacy will be long remembered.
