As national dialogue around Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s quickly turned to the political battle that would ensue over her replacement on the U.S. Supreme Court, local lawyers wanted to make sure time was reserved to mourn the legal icon and trailblazer.

Dozens of San Antonio residents gathered Saturday evening at the Bexar County Courthouse to celebrate Ginsburg’s life and service.

“Our fear was so many were rushing to discuss who would replace her that not enough time would be spent to remember her and what she did for this country,” said lawyer Marisa Bono, a co-organizer of the vigil.

8:11 p.m. | The fight over Ginsburg’s replacement has been impossible to ignore. Several speakers have urged voters to commit to registering new voters and there’s been pushes for the Senate to wait until after the election for a confirmation hearing.

7:05 p.m. | Lawyers Celina Moreno and Marisa Bono organized the vigil. Bono tells the Express-News that so quickly the national conversation turned to who would replace her on the U.S. Supreme Court, that they wanted to make sure time was reserved to remember her life and service.
