Elizabeth Salas, Ginsburg’s housekeeper, will reportedly receive $40,000 in cash.
The former Supreme Court Justice passed away on September 18, 2020, at the age of 87. The Supreme Court announced that Ginsburg’s passing was due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer. Ginsburg had been battling cancer since May of 2020. She was at her home and her family was by her side, as previously reported.
Ginsburg served on the court for nearly three decades. The Supreme Court Justice also wrote the 7-1 opinion that allowed women entry into the Virginia Military Institute in 1996.
“Reliance on overbroad generalizations … estimates about the way most men or most women are, will not suffice to deny opportunity to women whose talent and capacity place them outside the average description,” Ginsburg wrote.
