Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg is Still Kicking

After fears that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, had missed this week’s arguments, today we have learned that RBG is alive, healthy, and cancer free. The New York Times reports Justice Ginsburg is healing from her recent surgery.

Kathleen Arberg, spokesperson for the Supreme Court said:

Her recovery from surgery is on track. Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required.

In December RBG had surgery to remove two nodules found on her left lung which put her out of commission for a while. She will be absent from the bench next week as well, but will be continuing to work from home. She was also dealing with rib fractures when she went in for surgery so her recovery will be extra important.

The Notorious R.B.G. has had two other cancer scares since her appointment onto SCOTUS in 1993.

It’s great to hear that she is doing well and on her road to recovery!
