Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has completed three weeks of radiation therapy at a New York City hospital to treat a malignant tumor on her pancreas, the court said Friday. “The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” a Court spokesperson said in a statement. “Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time.” An abnormality was detected in early July during a routine blood test, and a subsequent biopsy revealed the tumor. Ginsburg, 86, began radiation on Aug. 5 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and received treatment as an outpatient, the statement said. As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed on her pancreas.
Fox News Sunday Host Chris Wallace weighed in on the breaking news saying we all wish her a long, happy, health life and there is no reason not to think she won’t be on the court the first week in October but, if she were forced to step down it would make the Kavanaugh/Gorsuch/Thomas hearings look like a Tea Party.
