WASHINGTON (AP) — 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.
The court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said that doctors confirmed Ginsburg had an initial evaluation that found no evidence of remaining cancer following her surgery.
Ginsburg, the oldest justice on the court, 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, one in 1999 and one 10 years later.
