NYT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she no longer has pancreatic cancer

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose health has become a preoccupation of the American public as the Supreme Court hews rightward under President Trump, announced this week that she was cancer-free,” The New York Times is reporting.

“Justice Ginsburg, 86, one of four liberal justices on the nine-member court, told CNN in a wide-ranging interview on Tuesday that treatment for a malignant tumor on her pancreas had been successful.

“Her doctors discovered the tumor in July after a routine blood test, and a biopsy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City confirmed a localized malignant tumor.

“’I’m cancer-free,’ Justice Ginsburg said in the interview, adding that she had resumed an active schedule. ‘That’s good.’”
