"At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon.

The complete transcripts of the Clarence Thomas--Anita Hill hearings : October 11, 12, 13, 1991 by United States( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains not only the complete verbatim transcript of the testimony given before the Senate Judiciary Committee on October 11, 12 and 13, 1991, but, as Nina Totenberg points out in her preface, "the important exhibits that were submitted - affidavits aimed at discrediting Hill, and the sworn testimony of the so-called "other woman", Angela Wright, who had worked for Thomas and, like Hill, claimed he made lewd and inappropriate remarks to her." Wright herself was never called to testify before the cameras. But she did give telephone testimony to the committee staff - as did her friend Rose Jourdain - and that testimony is included here. Although more that two years have passed since these hearings were held, public interest remains high. With their implications for attitudes toward race, gender and sexual harassment, the issues and emotions created by the hearings are still of vital importance to literate, thinking Americans. History, someone said, is what happens before you know it. Thus, many events come clear only in retrospect. This book will at last allow the general interest reader the opportunity to develop a calm and reasoned insight into those explosive and historic three days
Original intent : the battle for America( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Original Intent is the judicial philosophy promoted by President George W. Bush and Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Originalists believe the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted in the way the Founding Fathers understood it in 1789 -- an era when only white men were allowed to vote and slavery was legal. Others believe the Constitution was crafted in broad, open-ended language and that its meaning evolves over time. Original Intent: The Battle for America argues that the far right is using originalism as a cover to advance a radically conservative political agenda. With the appointments of Justices Roberts and Alito, the balance of the Supreme Court shifted dramatically to the right. Many laws that are considered fundamental rights can be overturned, particularly laws that protect civil rights, voting rights, affirmative action, reproductive rights, privacy, and sexual freedom. The film contains interviews with: Robert Bork, Supreme Court nominee; Prof. Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean, UC Irvine Law School; Prof. Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School; Edwin Meese, Attorney General, Reagan Administration; Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY); Prof. Nadine Strassen, NY Law School and President, ACLU; and Nina Totenberg, Legal Affairs Correspondent, National Public Radio. An essential film for courses in political science, government, constitutional law and American studies
Ruth Bader Ginsburg : the last interview and other conversations by Ruth Bader Ginsburg( Book )

3 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From her start in Depression-era New York, to her final days at the pinnacle of the American legal system, Ruth Bader Ginsburg defied convention, blazing a trail that helped bring greater equality to women, and to all Americans. In this collection of in-depth interviews -- including her last, as well as one of her first -- Ginsburg details her rise from a Brooklyn public school to becoming the second woman on the United States Supreme Court, and her non-stop fight for gender equality along the way. Besides telling the story behind many of her famous court battles, she also talks openly about motherhood and her partnership with her beloved husband, her Jewishness, her surprising friendship with her legal polar opposite Justice Antonin Scalia, her passion for opera, and, in one of the collection's most charming interviews, offers advice to high school students wondering about the law. It is, in the end, both an engrossing look into a fascinating life, and an inspiring tribute to an American icon."--Amazon
To a more perfect union : U.S. v. Windsor( Visual )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v Windsor" tells a story of love, marriage and a fight for equality. The film chronicles two unlikely heroes, octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, on their quest for justice: Edie had been forced to pay a huge estate tax bill upon the death of her spouse because the federal government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples ... and Edie s spouse was a woman. Deeply offended by this lack of recognition of her 40+ year relationship with the love of her life, Edie decided to sue the United States government and won. Beyond the story of this pivotal case in the marriage equality movement, the film also tells the story of our journey as a people, as a culture, and as citizens with equal rights. Windsor and Kaplan s legal and personal journeys are told in their own words, and through interviews with others, including Lillian Faderman, a leading scholar on LGBTQ history, and Evan Wolfson, who first at Lambda Legal and later as founder of Freedom to Marry was the godfather of marriage equality in the US and now worldwide. Legal observers, including Jeffrey Toobin from CNN and Nina Totenberg of National Public Radio, also lend their insights

And the only thing they have on their side are: 82 Emmy, Grammy, and Tony winning comics, actors, and musicians. Includes 28 all-new original comedy-music tracks, and taking satirical aim at everything American (sports, sex, media, race, religion, history, rock n' roll, technology, and of course, zombie boy bands); there is 12 musical genres (from bluegrass to hip-hop to heavy metal, from ragtime to rap to Broadway, and everything in between); countless unthinkable collaborations, like... - Reggie Watts (Comedy Bang Bang), Right Said Fred, & Mayim Bialik (Big Bang Theory), NPR's Nina Totenberg singing rock opera - Patton Oswalt playing God, accompanied by Muddy Waters' guitarist ; Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, backed by a Grammy-winning Dixieland band - Dick Cavett, Dick Gregory, Joe Franklin and Al Jaffee squaring off against Margaret Cho. 2776 is one epic comedy-musical journey through America's past, present, and future.
