Happy birthday to Sandra Day O’Connor, who served for 25 years on the Supreme Court. 

After retiring, Justice O’Connor was a champion of fighting for judicial selection reform to preserve fair and impartial state courts.

“If the State has a problem with judicial impartiality, it is largely one the State brought upon itself by continuing the practice of popularly electing judges.”

— Former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, U.S. Supreme Court
