Ruth Bader Ginsburg shows ‘no evidence of remaining disease,’ Supreme Court says

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg missed oral arguments for the first time in her career this week and President Donald Trump noticed.

Ginsburg was working from home and reading transcripts of the oral arguments, according to a court spokeswoman and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. Ginsburg, 85, had surgery on December 21 to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung. "Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", Arberg said.

Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove cancerous tumors from her lungs last month. Prior to this week, she had never missed a day of work in her more than 25 years as a Supreme Court justice.

Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, is recuperating at her Washington, DC, home.

"If you are replacing Justice Ginsburg with a Trump appointee, that would be akin to replacing Thurgood Marshall with Clarence Thomas", Malcolm stated.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Ginsburg slammed Trump and called him a "faker", an unusual move for a Supreme Court justice.

Ginsburg's absence from the court this week was the first time she has missed oral arguments for health reasons.

Derby claim training ground 'spy' stopped by police was Leeds employee
I have a different point of view, but the important thing is what he and Derby think. I am responsible for it because I didn't ask for Leeds United permission to do it.

Powell repeats pledge to remain 'patient' with rate hikes
At the same time, Powell said there are concerns in financial markets about slowing global growth and rising trade tensions. The balance sheet "will be substantially smaller than it is now", though bigger than it was before the crisis, Powell said.

Fox News reports that two doctors with experience in performing pulmonary lobectomies said that Ginsburg should recover within six-to-eight weeks given her age and the type of procedure she underwent.

Ginsburg, 85, showed the necklace to Katie Couric in a 2014 interview and told her she had deemed it her dissenting collar because, "It looks fitting for dissents".

According to a White House source who talked to Politico, the Trump administration "is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process".

"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it", she said a year ago. That decision came into stark relief this month when Ginsburg fell and broke three ribs-and half of the nation took a collective gasp.

The necklace reportedly landed in Ginsburg's famous collar collection after she received it in the VIP gift bag at Glamour magazine's "Women of the Year" gala that year.

[N] o amount of swag or hagiography can obscure the fact that, while Ginsburg is responsible for a great number of landmark legal decisions, her legacy may be sorely tarnished by one truly bad one: refusing to retire when President Barack Obama could have named her replacement.
