Ruth Bader Ginsburg shows ‘no evidence of remaining disease,’ Supreme Court says

On the Basis of Sex

The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's cancer surgery and ongoing recuperation has cast an atmosphere of uncertainty over the Supreme Court at a critical time for its future and as the legal fate of several controversial White House policies hang in the balance...

Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove cancerous tumors from her lungs last month.

"Justice Ginsburg is unable to be present today, but will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments", Chief Justice John Roberts said on.

Thai police: Canada, Australia willing to accept Saudi woman
The Saudi embassy in Bangkok said it "did not demand her deportation" and that the case is "a family affair". Surachate said her father and brother were due to return home on a flight in the early hours of Saturday.


Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg says that doctors for Ginsburg confirmed an initial evaluation that found no evidence of remaining cancer following surgery.

The Trump administration may soon be tasked with nominating a third Supreme Court justice if Ginsburg has to leave the high court due to failing health.

Fox News is reporting on Ginsburg's past comments about what would signal her retirement.

Steelers president open to trading A.B
Art Rooney II publicly said it is "hard to envision" Antonio Brown remaining with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019. He also indicated that the issues with Brown at the end of the season are likely part of a broader problem.


The White House 'is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process, ' a source told the publication. The pulmonary lobectomy was performed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY.

Congratulations and thank you to all the American good witches, prayer warriors, the LegalZoom School of Wizardy, and everyone who volunteered to donate a body part to Ruth Bader Ginsburg: your fervent (and sometimes overzealous) best wishes for her health and recovery have been granted. In mid-December, she reiterated that vow, telling an audience that she would do the job "as long as I can do it full-steam". Widely viewed as tenaciously willing to hang on with a Republican in the presidency, Ginsburg's own affirmations suggest she may view competency to conduct the court's business as a matter that rivals the court's ideological makeup in importance.

She has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Mercedes-Benz reports best ever sales in India
The Indian market has always had a liking towards Mercedes-Benz models over other major brands, ever since the late-20th century. Currently, the CLA class is available in the price range between Rs 31.72 lakh to Rs 36.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).


But should she not return for the February 19 public sessions, there will likely be renewed concern for the liberal justice's future. Furthermore, Trump's nomination would potentially allow for another conservative to join the court, sparking another uproar from liberals similar to Justice Brett Kavanaugh's nomination.
