Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke at a conference hosted by the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy Friday about some of the cases she and her colleagues have ruled on during this term.
She discussed decisions involving strip searches of suspects arrested for minor infractions, privacy issues regarding police tracking devices and life without parole sentences for juvenile defendants.
She also commented on two major rulings, yet to be handed down, concerning the constitutionality of the federal health care law and Arizona’s immigration law.
ACS Founder Peter Rubin introduced Justice Ginsburg. The organization is commonly referred to as the liberal counterpoint to the Federalist Society, a self-described conservative and libertarian group.
