Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg praised fellow Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch as "very decent and very smart individuals," CNN reports.

Ginsburg, at an event hosted by Duke Law in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, said in response to a question, "I can say that my two newest colleagues are very decent and very smart individuals."

The Justice previously told NPR that the nine members of the Supreme Court work well together. She also noted that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh were both law clerks during her initial years, and that she assigned each one of them important opinions in which she was the senior justice in the majority.

Ginsburg praised Kavanuagh earlier this month for hiring an all-female staff of law clerks as well.

"There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term, and it's thanks to our new justice, Justice Kavanaugh, whose entire staff is all women. All of his law clerks are women," she said, according to CNN. "And with his four women as law clerks, it's the first time in the history of the United States that there have been more women clerking at the court than men."
