Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says Her Cancer Is Back But She Will Remain on the Court

HeadlineJul 20, 2020

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announced Friday she is undergoing chemotherapy treatments for a recurrence of her cancer. The cancer is in her liver. Ginsburg previously survived pancreatic, colon and lung cancer. Ginsburg was hospitalized briefly last week for chills and a fever but says it was unrelated to the cancer. In a statement, the 87-year-old justice said, “I have often said I would remain a member of the court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that.”
