Ginsburg’s Lace Collars

by Ed Whelan

Reinforcing sexist stereotypes, Justice Ginsburg has revealed to Katie Couric that she has a collection of lace collars to accompany her judicial robe and that she “has a special collar she wears for when she’s dissenting, and another for when she is in the majority.” So for those in the audience at the Supreme Court on announcement days, there is another tea leaf to read as they await announcements.

No word whether Ginsburg changes collars after one ruling has been announced and before the next.
