LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Several members of the Los Angeles City Council have proposed building a statue of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg here in the City of Angels.
Ginsburg died last Friday at the age of 87. Today’s LA City Council meeting adjourned in her honor.
“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a champion of race and gender equality.

A City of Los Angeles statue honoring her would be a lasting tribute to a woman whose life-changing work will outlive us all.”
