(ANSA) - NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 19 - Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at the age of 87, following complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 87 years old. Nominated by Bill Clinton, she has been on the Supreme Court since 1993. Born in Brooklyn on March 15, 1933, she has been a liberal icon and champion of women's rights for decades. His passing gives President Donald Trump the chance to cement the conservative majority in the US Supreme Court, where he has already appointed Neil Gorsuch and Bret Kavanaugh. The dem demand that Ruth Bader Ginsburg's successor in the Supreme Court be chosen after the presidential election by the winner. This was said by the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, Chuck Schumer. "Americans should have their say in choosing the next Supreme Court judge."
