Justice Ginsburg Misses Supreme Court Arguments

First time ever as she recovers from surgery

Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was unable to attend oral arguments on Monday for the first time in her more than two decades on the nation’s highest court.

A spokeswoman said the justice was working from home after undergoing surgery last month to remove two cancerous nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung. The spokeswoman said Justice Ginsburg will participate in the cases using briefs, filings, and transcripts of oral arguments.

No indication was given as to how long Justice Ginsburg will be working remotely. Oral arguments are also set for Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
