I understand you guys all admire Ruth Bader Ginsburg as much as I do. I ran across the following very interesting piece of info. Check it out!
First Linda Greenhouse, now Justice Kagan. Plagiarism from the likes of a New York Timesreporter doesn’t surprise me, but a justice of the United States Supreme Court? O tempora o mores!
Justice Kagan, plagiarizing at the New York City Bar.The New York City Bar Association recently hosted Justices Ginsburg and Kagan for the “annual Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Distinguished Lecture on Women and the Law,” which Justice Kagan delivered. The title of her lecture was “Justice Ginsburg’s Greatest Hits.” Hmm, why does that phrase sound so familiar? OH I know: Because I’ve written a series of posts on the GinsBlog titled “Ruth’s Greatest Hits”! Granted, only one of the cases she talked about was a case I’ve written about, but I’m still going to say that Elena Kagan plagiarized my blog.
And I know Justice Kagan knows about the GinsBlog—she mentioned it in her lecture! From the NYC Bar Association website: “‘As a ligitagor, and then as a judge, she changed the face of American anti-discrimation law,’ Justice Kagan said of Justice Ginsburg. ‘More than any other person, she can take credit for making the laws of this country work. And in doing so, she made possible my own career, and later on the careers of today’s devotees of the Notorious RBG Tumblr and the Ruth Bader GinsBlog.'” Honestly, why would a Supreme Court justice willingly refer to such garbage as this website?Justices Ginsburg and Kagan, and some other guys, at the NYC Bar, or whatever, I think….But as long as members of the Supreme Court are plagiarizing the GinsBlog, maybe I’ll try to write some more posts for the “Ruth’s Greatest Hits” series. (By the way, “Ruth’s Greatest Hits” includes everything RBG has ever done.)
UPDATE: Here’s video. It should start shortly before what is clearly the most important moment of Justice Kagan’s talk: when she mentions the GinsBlog! (14:11)
