Ruth Bader Ginsburg misses oral arguments for 2nd day in a row

News

For the second day in a row, supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was not present for oral arguments.

Ginsberg is able to vote on the cases before the court by reviewing transcripts of oral arguments.

The 85-year-old key liberal justice is still recovering from surgery she had last month to remove two cancerous nodules from her lung.

According to the high court, there was no evidence of any remaining disease following the surgery.

Doctors found the cancer incidentally after Ginsberg suffered a fall in November.

She has battled cancer in the past, but never had to miss oral arguments.
