Court: Justice Ginsburg up and working after surgery

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is working from her hospital bed as she recovers from cancer surgery, The Guardian reported.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appears at an event in NY earlier this month, days before undergoing surgery for early stage lung cancer.

Doctors have said there are no indications the disease spread or remains in her body.

"Justice Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital yesterday and is recuperating at home", Kathleen Arberg, a public information officer for the Supreme Court, confirmed to Variety via email.

The most senior justice on the Supreme Court's liberal wing has previously had surgery to treat colon cancer and pancreatic cancer. She was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009. Despite this, Trump took to Twitter to wish her a speedy recovery, as did her legions of supporters. Ginsburg, appointed by the Democratic president Bill Clinton in 1993, is also the senior liberal member of the court, which has a 5-4 conservative majority.
