Robert Barnes, a WaPo reporter who covers the Supreme Court, recently announced Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg missed work today, just a little over two weeks after she had major surgery to remove cancer from her lungs:
BREAKING: Justice Ginsburg will NOT be on the bench today when the court hears oral argument, the first time she has missed a session. She underwent cancer surgery Dec. 21

This is supposedly the first time in 25 years Ginsburg has missed an argument:
Justice Ginsburg, who recently had cancer surgery, won’t be on the bench on Monday. It’s the first time she’s missed an argument in her 25 years on the court.

Perhaps her days serving as a justice on the SCOTUS are numbered…
