Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Missing Oral Arguments After Cancer Operation

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be skipping the high court’s oral arguments for the fist time since she was elevated to the court as she continues to recover from cancer surgery, the court says.

According to the Associated Press:

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Monday the 85-year-old Ginsburg is continuing to recuperate and work from home after doctors removed two cancerous growths from her left lung on Dec. 21.

The court also said that Ginsburg will still participate in the court’s deliberations through written briefs and transcripts.

No date was offered for when Ginsburg might return to the court.

The justice broke her ribs on November 7 in a fall, but as doctors were treating her for the breaks they discovered the cancer nodes on her lungs and decided to operate right away.

According to a press release from the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg was “resting comfortably” at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, New York, after her lung operation.

The press release also noted that “no further treatment is planned.”

However, the justice has been treated for cancer several times in the past, both in 1999 and 2009.
