Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Monday the 85-year-old Ginsburg is continuing to recuperate and work from home after doctors removed two cancerous growths from her left lung on Dec. 21. Doctors said last month that there was “no evidence of any remaining disease” after Ginsburg’s surgery, court officials said.
The justice, who leads the court’s liberal wing, is the eldest person on the Supreme Court. She previously underwent surgery for colorectal cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009, according to the AP.

The Supreme Court says Ginsburg is missing arguments for the first time in more than 25 years as she recuperates from cancer surgery last month.
