Ginsburg Will Return to Supreme Court Per Report
 
Despite speculation that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would retire the Supreme Court has released a statement stating that she will return to the bench.

According to Fox News:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will miss next week’s court sessions and work from home, but her recovery from early-stage lung cancer surgery remains "on track" and no further treatment is needed, the court announced Friday.

“Justice Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments. Her recovery from surgery is on track,” Supreme Court public information officer Kathy Arberg said in a statement.

“Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required,” she said.

The 85-year-old’s absence this week from oral arguments -- her first since joining the bench -- after her surgery in December sparked speculation about a possible departure, and even led to low-key planning by the White House for that scenario.

There is still no timetable for Ginsburg's return but the Supreme Court has said that it is on track for recovery.
