Honoring Justice Sandra Day O'Conner

Location: Washington, DC

HONORING JUSTICE SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR -- (House of Representatives - March 01, 2006)

Mrs. BIGGERT. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of the resolution honoring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Justice O'Connor served as a role model at a time when very few women were pursuing legal careers. Even before she was appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Justice O'Connor's career was one to follow. She served as a government lawyer, general practitioner, agency attorney, state legislator, and a judge at both the trial and appellate levels.

As the first woman ever to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice O'Connor was a steady--albeit unpredictable--presence on the bench. She was incredibly thoughtful and deliberate with her decisions, evaluating every case on its merits.

Justice O'Connor earned her place in history, making a permanent mark on the judicial system that will forever inspire girls and women throughout America. She will be greatly missed.
