Supreme Court says Justice Ginsburg’s recovery is ‘on track’

On the Basis of Sex

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will likely miss one more week at the United States Supreme Court as she continues to recover at her home from lung surgery late past year, reports Fox News.

Cruz later quipped, when discussing how to fix the nation's health care system, that Speaker Nancy Pelosi should retire, and then "send her and Ruth Bader Ginsburg on a vacation". On Friday, the court released a written statement saying there is no additional evidence of cancer.

Speaking of her retirement, Ginsburg has also said that like her colleague, former Justice Paul Stevens, she would like to continue on the court until she turns 90.

If Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, is unable to return to the bench, President Donald Trump would have the chance to nominate a third Supreme Court justice to the highest USA court.

The Trump administration may soon be tasked with nominating a third Supreme Court justice if Ginsburg has to leave the high court due to failing health. It's not clear whether she will be able to participate next Monday, when another round of oral arguments is set to begin.

A short list of potential nominees is being drafted by the White House counsel's office and the Senate Judiciary Committee's new chairman, Republican Sen.

This week, for the first time since she joined the court in 1993, she missed a round of oral arguments. On Dec. 21, the Supreme Court press office reported that the surgery had been successful, and the nodules had been removed. In 1999, Ginsburg underwent surgery for colorectal cancer, and 10 years later she was treated for early stages of pancreatic cancer. Trump has added two justices since becoming president in January 2017, cementing its 5-4 conservative majority.

Despite a third bout with cancer, Ginsburg said she has no intentions of stepping down from her lifetime appointment to the court. The pulmonary lobectomy was performed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY.

The source described the conversations as very preliminary so the White House is not "unprepared" for a grueling hearing.

'I wish her well.

Ginsburg herself has remained adamant that she would continue to stay on the Supreme Court for as long as she could.

Roberts, Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Associate Justice Samuel Alito Jr.
