Washington: On September 18, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away.  87-year-old Ginsburg was the oldest justice of nine on the Supreme Court, according to reports.

The report added that Ginsburg had informed her  granddaughter she didn't want to be replaced until a new President is installed.

A few days before her death, Ginsburg dictated the statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed," according to NPR.

Ginsburg died after a fight with pancreatic cancer, the court announced, saying she passed away surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, DC.

Affectionately known as the Notorious RBG, she was a staunch opponent of President Donald Trump. Ginsburg  was outspoken in her condemnations of the president, a man she criticized for his "ego" and whose impact on the court she said she did not "even want to contemplate."
