Ginsburg to Miss Second Week of Oral Arguments as Speculation Mounts

Test coming for Ginsburg's promise to leave if she's not at 'full steam'

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has no remaining signs of cancer after her surgery last month, requires no additional treatment, but will miss oral arguments at the court next week to rest, the Supreme Court said Friday. Ginsburg has seen her salary rise almost $100,000 since she was appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton in 1993. "Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", she said.

'Glad to see you are feeling great, ' President Trump told her at an event for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. In 2016, she reported $204,534 in royalties from her book My Own Words.

If Ginsburg, one of the court's four liberal members, were unable to continue serving, Trump could replace her with a conservative, further shifting the court to the right. She has been reading legal briefs and participating in cases by relaying her votes to the other justices... There is no question the president would replace the left-leaning Ginsburg with a solid conservative, which would swing the court to a 6-3 conservative majority, a thought that horrifies the left.

In late December of a year ago, Justice Ginsburg underwent surgery for lung cancer.

Despite a third bout with cancer, Ginsburg said she has no intentions of stepping down from her lifetime appointment to the court. But Ginsburg has already survived cancer in 1999 and 2009.

A limited-edition release of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's iconic "dissent" collar-style necklaces have reportedly flown off Banana Republic's online shelves before they even went on sale.

A year ago, the news broke that Ginsburg hired law clerks for at least two court terms, signaling she intends to stay through 2020.
