Addendum from Otieno :  it was  McCleskey vs Kemp, Sandra Day O’Connor not RBG, and the phrase was:

“The Court next states that its unwillingness to regard petitioner’s evidence as sufficient is based in part on the fear that recognition of McCleskey’s claim would open the door to widespread challenges to all aspects of criminal sentencing…Taken on its face, such a statement seems to suggest a fear of too much justice.”
