  • Test coming for Ginsburg's promise to leave if she's not at 'full steam'

As Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to recover from cancer surgery, people are clamoring to copy her iconic look. On Dec. 21, the Supreme Court press office reported that the surgery had been successful, and the nodules had been removed.

The 85-year-old associate justice underwent surgery to recover two cancerous growths from her left lung on December 21.

Kathy Arberg said Ginsburg will read briefs and transcripts from the cases from home and stay up to date on court business. On Friday afternoon, Washington Post reporter Robert Barnes tweeted that the Supreme Court announced Ginsburg has no remaining signs of cancer and will need no additional treatment.

Speculation about her future took on renewed fervor this week after she missed oral arguments for the first time in 25 years. The key liberal justice returned to the court shortly after the fall that fractured three of her ribs last November.

Currently, the nine-member Court already has a five-four conservative majority following Trump's controversial appointment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Until Monday, she hadn't missed oral arguments she was confirmed to join the court after Bill Clinton's nomination of her in 1993. "She even wore her collar the day after Donald Trump's presidential election win to showcase her disapproval of the results".

Two doctors contacted by Fox News with experience in performing pulmonary lobectomies said, given her age and procedure, a home recovery of about six-to-eight weeks is common - and they would expect the justice to be ready to resume normal duties next month.

Congratulations and thank you to all the American good witches, prayer warriors, the LegalZoom School of Wizardy, and everyone who volunteered to donate a body part to Ruth Bader Ginsburg: your fervent (and sometimes overzealous) best wishes for her health and recovery have been granted.

[N] o amount of swag or hagiography can obscure the fact that, while Ginsburg is responsible for a great number of landmark legal decisions, her legacy may be sorely tarnished by one truly bad one: refusing to retire when President Barack Obama could have named her replacement.
