Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back at work. The 85-year-old Supreme Court justice met with other justices Friday at the court to consider requests to review cases, reports the Hill. Ginsburg missed two weeks of oral arguments last month as she recovered from a December surgery to remove cancerous growths from her left lung, per CNN. In January, the court said there was no sign of lingering disease and no further treatment was needed. The justices, on winter break, return to the bench Tuesday. Among the cases being considered Friday: a call from the Trump administration to review a lower court's decision to block 2020 census questions about citizenship. (More Ruth Bader Ginsburg stories.)
