After cancer surgery, Ruth Bader Ginsburg to miss oral argument at court

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be working from home and will not participate from the bench during the two scheduled oral arguments on Monday after undergoing surgery for lung cancer last month, a court spokeswoman said.
Ginsburg, 85, will instead use the case briefs and transcripts to participate in the cases, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. The liberal justice underwent surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York to remove two cancerous nodules in her left lung and was released from the hospital on Dec. 25.
