Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recovery "on track", no sign of remaining cancer

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recovery

During her recovery, according to NPR, she will participate in cases before the Supreme Court from her home.

The White House is even working on a short-list of possible nominees to replace Ginsburg, who broke her 25-year streak when she began missing oral arguments on Monday. On Friday afternoon, Washington Post reporter Robert Barnes tweeted that the Supreme Court announced Ginsburg has no remaining signs of cancer and will need no additional treatment. Her dissents in recent years have continued to energize Democrats at a time when Republicans control the executive branch of government and the Supreme Court moves rightward.

In late December of a year ago, Justice Ginsburg underwent surgery for lung cancer. She gave him the go ahead but was initially skeptical, replying, "Well, if that's how you think you'd like to spend your time".

"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a pulmonary lobectomy today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City", read the statement. The key liberal justice returned to the court shortly after the fall that fractured three of her ribs last November. "Both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation".

"Her recovery from surgery is on track", she said.

Politico said numerous prospective nominees to replace Ginsburg were women, which theoretically would derail the likelihood of sexual-assault claims such as those faced by Justices Thomas and Kavanaugh.

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

If Ginsburg retires in the near future, Trump will have his third opportunity to nominate a Supreme Court justice during his first term in office - an alarming prospect for liberal activists and Democratic senators. She is also a survivor of colon and pancreatic cancers, and she has a stent in her right coronary artery.

Experts point out it could be another brutal confirmation process, with a third Trump nominee marking a significant shift on the court.

"The dissent collar has become synonymous with Ginsburg's way of showing the public how she feels about a decision on the bench", the report continued.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has had the opportunity to replace two retiring justices, tipping the balance in the conservatives' favor.
