Prosecutor Kym Worthy's Statement about the Passing of
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Prosecutor Worthy said, "Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg served on our nation's highest court with distinction, honor, and class. She was a feminist firebrand who inspired women all over the world to reach the highest heights, to fight the fiercest fights, and to never back down from what is right. I will miss her on the Supreme Court, I will miss her in life, and on the proverbial battlefield. May she truly Rest in Peace for many jobs well done."
