Gov. Phil Murphy has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in recognition of the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The United States and New Jersey flags will remain at half-staff at all state buildings and facilities until the iconic late justice in interned at Arlington National Cemetery.
“Justice Ginsburg dedicated her life and career not only to the premise of equal justice and equity under the law, but also to the most basic premise that, regardless of gender, or race, or religion, or orientation, or identity, or nationality and ethnic heritage, we all must commit to fight for the things that we care about,” Murphy said. “We have been made a better nation, and a better people, through her reasoned approach and sharp-minded opinions.”
