MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Tony Evers has ordered the flags of the United States and the State of Wisconsin to be flown at half-staff in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Flags are to be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of her internment, a release said.
“Justice Ginsburg was a stalwart public servant who spent her life working to hold our country accountable for our promises of equity, equality, truth, and justice. What a devastating loss,” said Gov. Evers.
Ginsburg fought for equality and paved the way for female judges -- including two who now serve on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
