Ginsburg acknowledges Trump will fill Supreme Court vacancy

Headline Legal News Posted on

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is acknowledging that the outcome of last week's election means that Donald Trump will fill the Supreme Court's 9-month-old vacancy.

Ginsburg did not otherwise comment on the presidential election Monday in a question-and-answer session at a meeting of the Jewish Federations of North America in a Washington ballroom.

The 83-year-old justice said the most immediate impact on the court of Trump's election would be to fill the seat that Justice Antonin Scalia occupied until his death in February. Ginsburg said that "President Trump will fill it."

Ginsburg had criticized Trump in interviews last summer with The Associated Press and other news organizations. She apologized for her remarks soon thereafter.
