Ruth Bader Ginsburg spotted officiating at an outdoor wedding
Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be battling cancer for the fifth time, but she’s still in the mood for love.
Other people’s, that is.
The U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 87, made a brief quasi-public appearance over the weekend to officiate at the wedding of a family friend on Sunday.
“2020 has been rough, but yesterday was Supreme,” tweeted newly minted bride Barb Solish on Monday, with a photo of herself and the groom in profile gazing into each other’s eyes, as Ginsburg looked on, facing the camera. She wore her judicial robe, topped with one of her signature decorative collars, this one embroidered in black and white.
For anyone with coronavirus worries, Solish followed up with, “And don’t worry, we tested negative!”
Ginsburg and her fellow justices have been out of the public eye since March as the coronavirus pandemic halted in-person proceedings. Justices met and held arguments by phone through May and handed down opinions until mid-July, the Associated Press reported, posting their opinions online.
Shortly after they adjourned for the summer, Ginsburg announced she was undergoing chemotherapy for liver lesions, her fifth bout of cancer in 20 years, AP said.
But Sunday, the octogenarian could be seen officiating at the outdoor wedding of Solish and Danny Kazin at a private residence, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg told AP. She is a close friend of one of the families, Arberg said.
Kazin works for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Solish is at the National Alliance on Mental Illness, according to AP.
