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

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

"Justice Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments". Ginsburg is still recuperating from surgery to remove two cancerous nodules from her lungs.

Justice Ginsburg is now a three-time cancer survivor, and according to the American Lung Association, most patients are back to their usual lifestyles within a month after a lobectomy. When commenting on her former fellow Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens serving on the court until he was 90 years old, Ginsburg said, "H$3 e stepped down when he was 90, so I think I have about at least five more years".

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg says that doctors for Ginsburg confirmed an initial evaluation that found no evidence of remaining cancer following surgery.

Ginsburg, 85, suffered a fall in early November that resulted in three rib fractures and her hospitalization.

A source familiar with the conversations confirms to CNN that the White House legal counsel has been in communication with outside allies and conservative groups about next steps if something should happen to Ginsburg.

But her recent health scares have prompted White House officials to begin planning for her possible departure, according to multiple media outlets. In fact, then-Chief Justice Rehnquist missed oral arguments in 44 cases, all of the conferences on those cases, and still wrote the majority opinion in four of them.

She returned to the hospital in December to have these removed.

"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it", she said a year ago.

Congratulations and thank you to all the American good witches, prayer warriors, the LegalZoom School of Wizardy, and everyone who volunteered to donate a body part to Ruth Bader Ginsburg: your fervent (and sometimes overzealous) best wishes for her health and recovery have been granted. This marked Ginsburg's third bout with cancer. It also seems reasonable to assume she would do everything in her power to stay on until President Trump leaves office.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shows the many different collars she wears with her robes, in her chambers, at the Supreme Court building in Washington, June 17, 2016.

For Jones, RBG is a role that will stick with her always: "She's with me all the time, she's like a lucky charm on my shoulder - like a little Ruth Bader Ginsburg on my shoulder, in her gown".
