What was late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's role in the Jack Kirby family settlement with Marvel over character copyrights? Supreme Court procedure may be arcane at times, but the smallest moves by a Justice can have a major impact. #rbg #RIPRBG #scotus
The Kirby case involved the right to terminate transfers of copyright, which enables creators to reclaim material decades after selling it. Lower courts agreed w/ Marvel that Kirby’s material was work made for hire, which meant it was never owned by Kirby & couldn't be reclaimed.
Because the case was being appealed from the Second Circuit, covering New York, it fell under RBG’s purview - Justices manage cases based on the appellate courts to which they are assigned. ...

What do we do on Sundays? (I mean, before the cleaning, cooking, stopping kids' squabbles, and trying to crack the code of how to fit both work & homeschooling in the coming week). We read! So here's #EyalaReads, your recommended reads about #Africa #WomensRights & #Feminism.
"Grief is a cruel kind of education." Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wrote how grieving for her father, but also about who he was. It's a beautiful and moving piece. Uncomfortably intimate at times, especially because she has been so private so far.

"Volatile times call for complex and imaginative cultural stories." Read @MsAfropolitan's thoughts about African #feminism and afropolitanism today. (Blogging tip: see how she links back to her own blog when she guest-posts? We learn oh!)

What Ruth Bader Ginsburg means to me.
I’ve read pretty much all of the books written by her or about her.
She was a powerhouse.
When she heard “no” she persisted.
She was class and integrity. She was everything these sad little Republicans are not.
She didn’t whine and
complain. She battled through everything, even from her hospital bed. She wouldn’t have let a bone spur stop her.
To me she really epitomises what an American should be. She was able to disagree and then go to the opera and laugh with those with whom she disagreed.
We lost a truly great American. I hope she inspires many girls and boys to do what is right. To fight for what is right. To fight for what is just. To stand for ethics and dignity. And to be brave and strong in the face of adversity.
#RIPRBG. I will miss you so much.

Tonight I restore my soul. 🍻 Tomorrow, I get back to work.

1/ From Rabbi Emily Segal - "there is a Jewish tradition that those who die just before Rosh Hashanah are extraordinarily righteous & truly precious to God. We are taught that each Rosh Hashanah it is written who will live and who will die in the year to come... @caffeinatedrav
2/ "So last Rosh Hashanah, it was determined that RBG would die before this next year came to be...God did not want to let this precious, righteous person go... " #RIPRBG #RoshHashanah @caffeinatedrav
3/ "God wanted to cling on to every second of having this person on earth. But, God is God... and God knows that this person's name is not written in the Book of Life for the year to come...So God waits until the very last possible moment of the year... @caffeinatedrav

Trump let the cat out of the bag: he expects to invoke the 12th Amendment.

He said: “You think November 3 [decides the election]….at a certain point it goes to Congress.”

#12thAmendment gregpalast.com/warning-trump-…
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Back in June, @JoshFoxFilm and I discussed "The Nightmare Scenario" — that Trump can win via a constitutional coup d’état, by invoking the 12th Amendment.
Here’s how it could happen… GOPs vote in person, Dems by mail. The result? Election night count shows Trump landslide; exit polls show Trump landslide. As mail-in ballots reverse the race, Trump tweets "rigged!”

I’m attending WI 2020 Victory’s event, “WI Roundtable to Discuss the Violence Against Women Act and Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women” – sign up now to join me! mobilize.us/wi2020victory/… #mmiw #mmiwg #vawa #wisdems
Arvina Martin @Arvina4WI introduces Rep. Beth Meyers, and @beth_rep introduces @HeidiHeitkamp. All acknowledge and honor the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She would want us to continue the fight to protect women. #MMIW #MMIWG #RIPRBG
Heitkamp: VAWA passing was a collaborative effort. Led by Democrats, supported by some Republicans. COngress failed to reauthorize the act. Why? Fight about: Are we going to include LGBTQ+? How will we show up in unique situation of Indigenous/Tribal women?

In 1999, Justice Ginsburg married my best friends Hassan Jabareen and Rina Rosenberg in her Supreme Court chamber. They couldn’t marry in Israel where civil marriage is not possible.

During the ceremony RBG read a piece from The Prophet by Khalil Gibran on Love and Marriage. ImageImage
.@RinaRosenberg: “On many occasions she expressed support and appreciation for the work of @AdalahEnglish and she always encouraged us to continue the struggle for justice.” #RIPRBG
With Rina and Hassan’s permission, I’m sharing more details on how Justice Ginsburg met them and agreed to officiate their wedding at the US Supreme Court. It all started at @SalzburgGlobal seminar in Austria which RBG attended several times over the past years. ImageImage

THREAD: Here's a roundup of the stories my amazing @newsbusters family cranked out last night on #RIPRBG. First, you have @NickFondacaro on @NBCNightlyNews remembering her as a partly ‘moderate’ justice, fear Trump and McConnell filling seat newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicho…
Next, we have @ScottJW on Maddow and Hillary mourning together #RIPRBG --> Maddow to Hillary: Your Loss and Ginsburg Death Equal ‘Feminist Catastrophe’ newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott…

Her job was covering the Supreme Court.
Her husband was treating #RBG for cancer.
Ginsburg forbade @NinaTotenberg's husband from telling his wife.
"I just didn't want you to be trapped between your friendship for me and your obligations as a journalist." npr.org/2020/09/19/896…
"At the Oklahoma Social Security office where she toiled when Marty was drafted, she was demoted for being pregnant." nymag.com/intelligencer/… @irin #RIPRBG
"One reason Ginsburg might have been reluctant to retire is that like many women of her generation, it took so long for her to get a chance, and even longer for her to become the person she was supposed to be." @irin #RIPRuthBaderGinsburg

Rest In Power Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Een vrouw met grote daden en een CV die vol zit met scherven van de glazen plafonds die zij heeft gebroken. Haar dood zal grote gevolgen hebben voor het evenwicht op de Supreme Court, maar ook voor de verkiezingen. Een draadje (1/14) #RIPRBG
Als advocaat stond zij al voor het Hooggerechtshof om te vechten voor gelijke rechten voor iedereen en na 1993 is zij, na een nominatie van Bill Clinton, hiermee doorgegaan, maar dan vanaf de andere kant. Aan het begin zat zij vaak aan de kant van de meerderheid. (2/14) #RIPRBG
Dit veranderde en ze moest daardoor vaker optreden als the Great Dissenter. Met haar strakke en rake analyses vergaarde ze een cultstatus, vooral onder veel linkse jongeren, en kreeg ze de bijnaam the Notorious R.B.G., vernoemd naar mede Brooklynite, the Notorious B.I.G. (3/14)

Harvard’s Law School accepted 500 students in 1956.

Only 9 women were allowed in.

She was a foot shorter than everyone else in the room. But ten feet tall in history’s eyes. #RIPRBG Image
In 1956 Harvard Law School’s Dean invited to dinner all 9 of the women his school had allowed in.

He asked RBG, “Why are you at Harvard Law School, taking the place of a man?”

She later transferred to Columbia. Graduated #1 in her class. I’d say she justified her place.#RIPRGB Image
After RBG graduated at the top of her class from Columbia Law, she applied to be a Supreme Court clerk. She was the most qualified person to apply that year.

But she was rejected because she was a woman.

33 years later she became the second ever woman to serve as a SC Justice. Image

Boom! Lawyered: Tonight, We Lost a Giant. RIP Ruth Bader Ginsburg. #TeamLegal #RIPRBG rewire.news/multimedia/pod…
Jess and i talked a few weeks ago about what would happen if RBG passed and what we would do in response and I was like a child.

"There's no way I'll be able to record a pod. I'll be a mess. No."

But it's my job obviously. And I'm actually numb. I don't feel anything at all.
I mean I don't feel that much worse than I did yesterday. It's been a firehose of fuckery for the past couple weeks and I'm just numb and tired.

#RuthBaderGinsburg is walking w/ the ancestors now. We thank you, mother Ruth, for your indomitable spirit. We honor you for daring to dream a world where law sees women as FULLY human. You held on as long as you could; made good on your promise to fight till your last day. 1/ Image
Thank you, Ma’am. ((Deep bow))

The stakes for BIPOC and women and LGBTQ and disabled people and immigrants just went through the roof.

EVERYTHING IS AT STAKE.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg muere a los 87 años.
La jueza de la Corte Suprema de los EEUU fue una pionera en la igualdad de género y sus opiniones y acciones la convirtieron en una heroína de izquierda.
Pese a su edad era adorada por los jóvenes, quienes la dedicaron raps y memes
#RipRBG Image
El Tribunal Supremo confirmó que la segunda mujer en ocupar un cargo en el Supremo murió tras sufrir complicaciones por un cáncer de páncreas. Image
Todo indica a que Trump presentará a un nominado para ocupar el puesto vitalicio que RBG ha dejado pronto, según fuentes cercanas al presidente.

La semana pasada, Trump nombró posibles candidatos a los senadores Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz y Josh Hawley.

Don't worry, you guys, McConnell will do the right thing and hold up SCOTUS nominations because it’s an election year, right? #RIPRBG
Just want to remind Lisa Murkowski that she said she wouldn't vote to approve another SCOTUS justice after Kavanaugh.

Mitch McConnell said this ONE HOUR after Scalia died:

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

This was a full 7 months before the 2016 election.
