Jus­tice Gins­burg’s re­cov­ery ‘on track’

Star-Telegram - - Local & Texas -

The Supreme Court says Jus­tice Ruth Bader Gins­burg’s re­cov­ery from can­cer surgery is “on track” and no fur­ther treat­ment is re­quired. But the 85-year-old jus­tice will miss court ar­gu­ments next week.

Court spokes­woman Kathy Ar­berg said that doctors for Gins­burg con­firmed an ini­tial eval­u­a­tion that found no ev­i­dence of re­main­ing can­cer fol­low­ing surgery.

The court’s old­est jus­tice had surgery three weeks ago to re­move can­cer­ous growths on her left lung. She was re­leased from the hospi­tal in New York four days later and has been re­cu­per­at­ing at home since then.

Gins­burg missed three days of ar­gu­ments this week, the first time that’s hap­pened since she joined the court in 1993.

She has had two pre­vi­ous bouts with can­cer, in 1999 and 10 years later.
