Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States spoke with Aspen Institute President and CEO Walter Isaacson. 

Justice Ginsburg’s friendship with the late Justice Antonin Scalia spanned decades and transcended their ideological differences. Friendships “off-the-bench” are rare and theirs was forged with a deep love of the opera and renewed each Dec. 31 when they rang in the New Year together. At a time when partisan lines have been drawn, their uncommon bond serves as a reminder of how powerful reaching across the aisle can be.
