"Ginsburg is hospitalized with pancreatic cancer"
Because the Justices are in the midst of a long break, I did not expect much significant SCOTUS news this month. But, as detailed in this AP report, the health of the only current female Justice is now making headlines:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery Thursday after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the court said.
Ginsburg, 75, had the surgery at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. She will remain in the hospital for seven to 10 days, said her surgeon, Dr. Murray Brennan, according to a release issued by the court. The court announcement said the cancer is apparently in the early stages.
