Justice Roberts: O'Connor Blazed Historic Trail

By    |   Friday, 01 December 2023 11:16 AM EST

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts remembered former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who died Friday at 93, as a person who "blazed a historic trail as our nation's first female justice."

"She met that challenge with undaunted determination, indisputable ability, and engaging candor," Roberts said in a SCOTUSBlog post about O'Connor's death.

"We at the Supreme Court mourn the loss of a beloved colleague, a fiercely independent defender of the rule of law, and an eloquent advocate for civics education," Roberts said. "And we celebrate her enduring legacy as a true public servant and patriot."
