After Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg missed her first oral arguments in more than 25 years on the bench this week while recovering from an operation to remove two cancerous growths from her left lung, many have expressed concern over whether she would return to the bench. The cancer was discovered after she was hospitalized for a fall in November that left her with three broken ribs. "Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required". Her husband, Martin Ginsburg, died in 2010 due to complications of metastatic cancer. She was released from the hospital in NY four days later and has been recuperating at home since then. "Her recovery from surgery is on track", Arberg said via statement. People are concerned about her health, and rightly so, but as noted by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Ginsburg is working from home, and will participate in all opinions via the parties' previously submitted briefs and the argument transcripts that will be provided to her. After all, it's unlike Justice Ginsburg, but there's precedent for this sort of thing.
With Ginsburg missing oral argument for the first time since her 1993 appointment, Fox adds, "Ginsburg's recent absence has stirred speculation on whether she was considering retiring, given her previous comments on the topic".
Ginsburg - an icon for feminists and liberals - is sometimes referred to in pop culture as the "Notorious R.B.G".
