Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was awarded the ABA Family Law Section "Friend of the Family" award, even though the U.S. Supreme Court rarely hears family law cases. The Family Law News Blog links to her acceptance speech. This past term, though, there were several that have an impact on family law. At first I was delighted to see on the Supreme Court website .pdfs of what I thought were all the justices' speeches. I was sorry not to see Justice Ginsberg'S address when she accepted the Brandeis Award in Louisville in 2002. I remember her insisting that she speak before dinner so as to have our utmost attention. Too bad we can't recollect her comments.
