Three Former Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison Summer Associates are Justices on the U.S. Supreme Court - All the Ladies

LawPundit read only recently that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had broken two ribs this past June, but had continued without skipping a beat in her work. In the course of checking up on her injury we found that also she had been a summer associate at Paul|Weiss, as we wrote in our update today to a previous LawPundit posting at Another Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison Summer Associate to the Supreme Court? Obama Nominates Elena Kagan as U.S. Supreme Court Justice:
"Update, September, 2012: I read recently in the history of the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, of which I am a summer associate and associate alumnus, that also Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a summer associate at the firm. As written at the firm's Paul|Weiss history page online:
"Each of the three women serving on the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012 began her career as a summer associate at Paul, Weiss."
