Ginsburg, the subject of a recent documentary on her life, was nominated to the Supreme Court by Bill Clinton, taking the oath of office in early 1993. However, she reportedly hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020, indicating she has no plans to retire.

Some of her legal opinions, coupled with her refusal to step down during the Obama era, have seen her gain popularity in some quarters and earned her the nickname Notorious RBG. The couple met on a blind date when she was 17 years old. She is a survivor of colon cancer and pancreatic cancer.

President Donald Trump has appointed two justices to the court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, since taking office.
