U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg accepted the Henry J. Friendly Medal from the American Law Institute today and used the opportunity to call for a return to the “bipartisan spirit” that previously existed in Congress during judicial confirmations. Politico reports that Chief Justice John Roberts presented Ginsburg the award, which is given for “contributions to the law.” Only one other Supreme Court justice, Sandra Day O’Connor, has received the medal since it was first presented in 1987.
