Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is disease-free after cancerous nodules were removed from her left lung last month, but she will again miss oral arguments next week, the Supreme Court announced Friday.
“Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required,” Supreme Court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said in a statement on Friday, adding that recovery from her surgery is “on track.”

The statement also said that Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will make considerations and decisions using briefs and transcripts of oral arguments. She worked from home this week, which marked the first time she missed arguments in person in the 25 years she’s served on the court.
Last month, the 85-year-old underwent surgery to remove two malignant nodules from her left lung, which were identified after she fell and fractured three ribs last November.
Ginsburg was treated for colorectal cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009.
