WATCH: Remembering Ginsburg’s friendship with her ‘polar opposite,’ Antonin Scalia

Although he was her ideological opposite in many ways, the late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared a deep friendship with her former colleague, the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. “She said that he made her laugh, and he said that she made him a better justice,” said The National Law Journal’s Marcia Coyle, noting that Scalia would give his draft majority opinions to Ginsburg to read first because “she challenged him to be better.” “I know from things she has said since his death, that it was to her great dismay and sadness that the confirmation process for Supreme Court justices has become so partisan, and so ugly, in many ways,” Coyle said. Coyle spoke with PBS NewsHour national correspondent John Yang on Sept. 22 about the life and legacy of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
