In follow up to last week’s post regarding the somewhat surreal Ginsburg v. Trump headlines, it appears the longtime Supreme Court Justice to a limited extent agrees with much of the backlash against her, admitting that judges should “avoid commenting on a candidate for public office” and that her remarks were “ill advised.” She expressed regret and noted she will be “more circumspect” in the future. Notably she did not appear to render the apology to Trump himself, but more so to the institution of judges and their role as (theoretically) neutral deciders. Additionally, her expression of remorse for her public comments is perhaps as unprecedented as the comments themselves. Per the New York Times, legal scholars could not remember a time an active justice so publicly expressed regret for something they said. While it remains to be seen the long-term effect her recent comments and apology may have on her legacy or the public view of the Supreme Court, it seems fitting that the second female justice in history who is otherwise also known for being unique and mold-breaking would have such an unprecedented couple of weeks.
