Justice Ginsburg misses oral arguments for first time due to health reasons
Supreme Court official portrait
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg won’t be in court for oral arguments Monday as she continues to recover from cancer surgery.
Ginsburg will review transcripts of the arguments along with case filings as she works from home, a court spokeswoman told the media outlets.
Ginsburg, 85, had surgery Dec. 21 to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung. There was no evidence the disease had spread.
The nodules were discovered during tests at George Washington University Hospital to diagnose and treat three ribs that Ginsburg had fractured in a Nov. 7 fall.
