Happy Justice Ginsburg's Birthday to You
This year, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hits the big 86, putting her even closer to hitting the record for oldest sitting Supreme Court Justice.
In case you need the trivia answer, the oldest sitting Justice ever was Oliver Wendell Homes who was just a couple months shy of 91 years old when he stepped down in the early 1930s.
But it's no secret, here at FindLaw, we're big fans of the Notorious RBG. We even made a video to celebrate some of her most notable opinions. After all, celebrating the Justice's birthday is becoming a bigger and bigger event year, and with good reason.
