Ginsburg Watch

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday missed oral arguments for the first time since she joined the court. Ginsburg, 85, is recovering from December lung cancer surgery. She also recently fell and broke several ribs. The high-profile liberal justice was confirmed to the court in 1993 and had never missed a day of oral arguments, despite previous bouts with colorectal cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer a decade later. Ginsburg is expected to make a full recovery and return to work.
