Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not on the bench Monday morning as justices met for the first day of oral arguments of 2019. The 85-year-old, three-time cancer-surviving Justice is recuperating after she had two malignant tumors removed from her left lung just a few weeks ago. This marks the first time Ginsburg has missed a day of oral arguments since she was confirmed to the court over a quarter of a century ago. She will still be involved in the cases by reading the briefs and transcripts of the arguments.
