Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Speak at Oglethorpe 2019 Graduation

The notorious Supreme Court justice RBG has, as of March 2019, been scheduled to attend and speak as a guest at the graduation ceremony at the Atlanta based liberal arts school, Oglethorpe University this year.

Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1933 and recently celebrated her 83rd birthday on the 15th of March. She was appointed into the Supreme Court in 1993 by then president Bill Clinton and is one of the leading voices in the Supreme Court, also claiming the title of the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court and has been serving for more than 25 years. She is generally viewed to belong to the liberal wing and has been involved in many famous and important Supreme Court cases throughout her career in the Supreme Court.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is scheduled to attend a book signing before the graduation in the Oglethorpe library in the days before and after the graduation ceremony and is rumored to be participating in a basketball game against the Oglethorpe basketball team, The Stormy Petrels, with her fellow justices in order to “see who rules the highest court in all the land.” She has also been quoted as saying that she is going to “ball on and dunk on those Stormy Petrels until they start crying back to their mamas.” To speak at the ceremony alongside her is the up and coming Atlanta based SoundCloud rapper Big Chungus, and former McDonalds mascot Grimace.

If you read through this article and believe that RBG will be balling out against Oglethorpe's team, we regret to inform you that this piece was, in fact, a big ole April Fools to distract you from you studies. While Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not be attending Oglethorpe's graduation, she definitely would want you to finish studying so, get back to that!!
