The judge of the US Supreme Court said that she would continue to work.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she had started a course of chemotherapy to fight a relapse of cancer.
According to her statement, immunotherapy did not give positive results, but chemotherapy was more effective. In a statement, Ginsburg stressed: “I have often said that I will remain a member of the Court as long as I can do a good job. I retain the ability to do this.”
The health status of 87-year-old Ginsburg, the leader of the liberal justices of the Supreme Court, attracts particular attention. In the event of her departure from the Court by Republican President, Donald Trump will have the opportunity to appoint her a lawyer of conservative views.
Ginsburg became a member of the US Supreme court in 1993. She was previously diagnosed with cancer four times.
