Supreme Court says Justice Ginsburg's recovery is 'on track'

Supreme Court says Justice Ginsburg's recovery is 'on track'

Meanwhile, the White House is reportedly preparing for RBG's departure.

After the knock-down, drag-out confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh almost tore the nation asunder, the White House and Senate are preparing for another, potentially even more divisive, showdown.

Ginsburg has said she will continue to serve on the Supreme Court as long as she is able to do the job.

Dr. Raja Flores of Mount Sinai Medical Center reassured MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Thursday evening that Ginsburg's absence was "completely routine" for such a taxing surgery, and that "she'll be back in full form, I'd say within a month". "They're doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren't caught flat-footed", the source told Politico.

A short list of potential nominees is being drafted by the White House counsel's office and the Senate Judiciary Committee's new chairman, Republican Sen. She plans to work from home next week and will miss one more week of oral arguments. When commenting on her former fellow Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens serving on the court until he was 90 years old, Ginsburg said, "H$3 e stepped down when he was 90, so I think I have about at least five more years".

Tomic produces astonishing trick serve to beat Kyrgios on match point
World No. 51 Kyrgios said he was happy to see Tomic back in form after missing the Open previous year when his ranking plummeted. While the encounter was largely played in good spirits, Tomic won the encounter 6-3, 6-4 in controversial fashion.


"Roe, I believe, would have been more acceptable as a judicial decision if it had not gone beyond a ruling on the extreme statute before the court", she wrote in the North Carolina Law Review. "It would be a brutal confirmation", he said.

Ginsburg, 85, suffered a fall in early November that resulted in three rib fractures and her hospitalization. If Ginsburg steps down as one of the four liberal justices now serving, President Trump will nearly certainly appoint a conservative replacement, tilting the court further to the Right. "It would mark a large shift in the direction of the Court".

Ginsburg has experienced several health issues in recent years.

In any event, numerous judge names that have been floated so far are women: Amy Coney Barrett, Joan Larsen, Amul Thapar, Raymond Kethledge, Britt Grant; Thomas Hardiman, and Neomi Rao.
