POLL: Should Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg retire?
For the first time in over 25 years, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not in court to hear cases being argued, due to health issues.
The 85-year-old justice is at home recovering from the surgery she had last month, after doctors removed two cancerous growths from her left lung on December 21.
The growths were discovered when Ginsburg went to the hospital for treatment, after falling and fracturing her ribs on November 7.
Reportedly, no additional treatment is needed after the cancerous growths were removed, but Ginsburg is still not strong enough to return to court, and will be receiving briefs and transcripts of oral arguments at her home.
She was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and has brushed off all suggestions that she should retire, insisting that she is in good health.
Now, for the first time, Ginsburg is unable to be present while cases are being heard at the Supreme Court.
