DEVELOPING: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized with Infection, Hears Oral Arguments Via Telephone

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.06.20

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized this week with an infection; listening to Oral Arguments via telephone from a medical center in Maryland.

“The court said Tuesday evening that the 87-year-old justice had undergone non-surgical treatment for a benign gallbladder condition. The court said she planned to participate in arguments from the hospital Wednesday,” reports the Associated Press.

“Because of Ginsburg’s seniority on the court she has been third to ask a question during this week’s telephone arguments, following Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas. But Thomas apparently was having some technical difficulties when Roberts first called on him. Instead, Thomas followed Ginsburg with questions,” adds the AP.

A spokesperson for the Supreme Court said Ginsburg is expected to be released within one or two days following her treatment.

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.23.19

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently completed a three week treatment for a tumor on her pancreas, confirmed the nation’s highest court in a written statement Friday afternoon.

Read the full statement below:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 at Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor. As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed. The Justice tolerated treatment well. She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule. The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time.
