Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s absence this week from Supreme Court oral arguments – her first since joining the bench – has touched off a burst of speculation as well as low-key planning from the White House about the possibility of a departure.
At the same time, observers aren’t convinced the liberal backbone of the court is going anywhere. And as she recovers from early-stage lung cancer surgery, they suggest talk of a vacancy is premature.
The article goes on to state the following:
The 85-year-old Ginsburg had surgery Dec. 21.
The announcement that rocked the judicial world came from Chief Justice John Roberts at the start of Monday’s Supreme Court oral argument — that his colleague, who normally sits immediately to his left, would not be on the bench.
It marked the first time Ginsburg missed an oral argument in her quarter-century on the high court, though Roberts noted she would participate in consideration of the pending cases “on the basis of briefs, filings and transcripts.”
Ginsburg then missed sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, raising concerns about her long-term health prognosis as well as the short-term functioning of the court.
The absence has led to precautionary planning in Washington.
