“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg regrets that she is unable to attend the talk with David Rubenstein at 92Y on February 6,” an email from the 92nd Street Y said. “She is curtailing travel and focusing on her work while recuperating from recent surgery.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg has missed two consecutive weeks of oral arguments and is reportedly working from home in New York using transcripts and briefs.
A Supreme Court spokesperson said last week that Ginsburg’s recovery is “on track,” however, she is incapacitated to the point she is unable to make public appearances and her ongoing absence from the bench has critics calling for her to respectfully retire.
