This is an entertaining documentary about Justice Ginsberg.  I was unaware of her strategic efforts on behalf of women's rights early in her career.  No need to go to a theatre for this if you can get it on some streaming service.  But well worth the education.

He also had a great sense of humor.  Maybe he left it to her when he died.

But everyone I know who had him in law school hated him.
