Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has some supreme news: she’s cancer free.
The announcement comes after a history of bouts with health issues — some minor, some serious — and often it seemed that her health was so bad that she might retire from the Supreme Court.
But she has seemed to weather the storm.
The long-serving liberal lion of the Supreme Court — whose health travails keep plenty of progressives up at night — told CNN in an interview published Wednesday that she’s rid of cancer on her pancreas after receiving treatment during the summer.
“I’m cancer free,” Ginsburg told CNN. “That’s good.”
The 86-year-old judicial trailblazer, who has beaten four cancer ordeals in the past two decades, has served on the nation’s highest court since the Clinton administration.
Ginsburg was briefly hospitalized in November after she experienced chills and a fever.
She is part of the Supreme Court’s minority four-liberal bloc.
