Gov. Roy Cooper marked the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with words commemorating her history of legal accomplishments. 

Cooper called Ginsburg a pioneer for women’s rights who insisted on fair treatment for all. He urged the court to continue her legacy of justice and fairness.

Ginsburg died at her home in Washington, D.C. Friday. She was 87.

Cooper has ordered state flags to be flown at half-staff in a show of respect to Ginsburg.

It follows a similar proclamation for U.S. flags signed by President Donald Trump. The measure orders American flags on public and military grounds at home and abroad to fly at half-staff until sunset on the day of Ginsburg’s interment.
