Court says Gins­burg has no cancer re­main­ing

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - NATION & WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON — Tests re­vealed that Jus­tice Ruth Bader Gins­burg has no ad­di­tional cancer fol­low­ing her surgery in De­cem­ber, and no fur­ther treat­ment is needed, the Supreme Court an­nounced Fri­day.

“Jus­tice Gins­burg will con­tinue to work from home next week and will par­tic­i­pate in the con­sid­er­a­tion and de­ci­sion of the cases on the ba­sis of the briefs and the tran­scripts of oral ar­gu­ments,” court spokes­woman Kath­leen Ar­berg said in a state­ment.

Gins­burg had surgery Dec. 21 for two ma­lig­nant nod­ules in her left lung, the 85-year-old jus­tice’s third bout with cancer.

This week, for the first time since she joined the court in 1993, she missed a round of oral ar­gu­ments. Gins­burg is the old­est mem­ber of the court, and the long­est-serv­ing mem­ber of the court’s fourmem­ber lib­eral wing.
