Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer. She was 87. Ginsburg was appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton. Nicknamed the "Notorious R.B.G," the Supreme Court justice had achieved a pop culture status in recent years.

"Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature," said Chief Justice John Roberts. "We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her -- a tireless and resolute champion of justice."
