But that era may already be over, with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death on Friday. In giving Republicans the opportunity to cement 6-3 conservative control of the court, Ginsburg’s death made it much harder for Roberts to steer the court in a more moderate direction in cases where the conservative position put its legitimacy at risk...
