Ginsburg returns to Supreme Court for oral arguments
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be back on the bench Tuesday for oral arguments for the time since surgery in late December.
Ginsburg underwent surgery on Dec. 21 to remove two cancerous nodules from her lower left lung. The court said on Jan. 11 that Ginsburg’s recovery was on track and that a post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and that no further treatment is required.
Ginsburg was at court on Friday for a closed-door conference in which the justices decided which cases to review.
The justices are returning to the bench after a monthlong winter recess. They are expected to hear a dispute over patent and trademark law involving the U.S. Postal Service.
