Chief Justice Roberts will allow Ginsburg to decide cases as long as she has breath


 

Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts is giving Ginsburg a pass unimaginable. The most important court in the land will find its oldest member, who cannot even remain awake at the State of the Union addresses, will be allowed to decide cases from home. Unable to participate in the questioning of those that appear before it, she will simply read transcripts. No doubt her student interns will be filling in for her, prepping her in retaining her radical agenda. In other words, as long as she has breath she will remain on the Court. It was reported that she cast the last vote while under heavy sedation from her hospital bed. Where is the reporting on this?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was on Monday missing supreme court arguments for the first time in more than 25 years, as she recuperates from cancer surgery last month, the court said.

Ginsburg was not on the bench as the court met to hear arguments. It was not clear when she would return to the court, which will hear more cases on Tuesday and Wednesday and again next week.

 

Chief Justice John Roberts said in the courtroom that Ginsburg would participate in deciding the argued cases “on the basis of the briefs and transcripts of oral arguments”.

Despite that participation, Ginsburg was not expected to be able to ask questions Monday. That is significant, since Ginsburg is one of the court’s most consistent questioners. Last term, Ginsburg spoke at least once during every oral argument, according to an analysis by Empirical SCOTUS, one of only three justices to do so.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reportedly voted against President Donald Trump’s proposed asylum restrictions from her hospital bed, where she was recovering from lung surgery.

NBC News and NPR reported that Ginsburg cast the vote during her stay at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where she is recovering after two nodules were removed from her lungs.

“Unfortunately, lung cancer is usually caught in an advanced stage after it shows symptoms, after it has already spread to the lymph nodes and elsewhere, and by then it’s only curable in a small minority of cases,” Dr. John Heymach, chairman of thoracic, head and neck Medical Oncology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, told NBC News on Friday.

“It’s possible, without knowing the specifics of her case, that early detection because of those broken ribs saved her life,” said Heymach.

She has slept through many of the State of the Union speeches. from some years ago. Here is one of her excuses. Too much wine. Cute.
At a panel discussion on Thursday, Ruth Bader Ginsburg talked about nodding off during the State of the Union speech

Then we have this special moment.

As Pope Francis rose to address the assembled members of Congress and the justices of the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s head dropped and her eyelids closed in a repeat performance of January’s State of the Union address.

And just like the time before, it didn’t go unnoticed and people took to social media with their observations, including one that summed it up pretty well: “What an embarrassment.”

    They’re treating Ruth Buzzard the same was they treated barry soetoro. With whole bofy shaking fear that someone will call them ‘racissss’ (in barry’s case) or what Partisan Militant? (in Ruthie’s case)

    Disappointing that there are not rules already in place to cover these situations.

    I guess the rule is If you can prop the jurist up against a wall or other strong structure and make them appear to be alive, their decision will stand.

      Looking forward to those in the upper end of the age group to simply remain at home and phone in their opinion. What more can go wrong?

      Propping “The Buzz” up against a wall is just that. I read somewhere a while ago where it took her forever to get out of her seat and to leave the bench. I also read (damn, must find that article) that her clerks have been writing her arguments, etc. for months for her and the only thing that “The Buzz” had to do was sign them. Very unethical, if true.

        True. Then again all you have to do with her is pick the most progressive decision and what would be the diff?

    This story really bothers me. If she cannot sit to hear the arguments she should not be allowed to rule on the cases, that seems obvious to me any way. I wasn’t sure if Roberts could make this call but apparently he can and he is allowing this to happen. He is becoming more of a disgrace as time goes by.

      The fact that she voted while recovering from sedation set the tone and tenor of the Robert’s court. She will last until Trump is out of office even if we never see her again.

    I was under the impression that one had to be physically present in order to participate in rulings on the SC. Was that just a formality, I had thought it was actual policy.

      I would think so myself. No other court proceeds this way. The Supremes are the ultimate court of last appeal.

    Well, I think we could save an awful lot of money by sending our dead and near-dead SCJs to a taxidermist rather than having to reappoint new ones. Can I hear an a-men? Not sure what Roberts is thinking … but then, I was never sure about that.

      Mustang, I am thinking that it is getting abundantly clear what Roberts is all about and exactly what he is thinking. Why is it that our candidates always move left, and never the other way around?

        Exactly Right Bunk. My stepson is in this age group and the first thing he said as we began discussing the state of the union was that his generation did a horrible job of parenting. He is single, no kids.

    I think we all can see where this is going. Any time now she’ll be wheeled into court in her Stephen Hawkins chair replete with colostomy bag. Lucky for us though the rat funk turncoat sleeper cell-er Roberts will be with us another 40 years. Whoopi….

      Apparently Peter she won’t even have to be wheeled in…. just phone in is all she has to do now. Yes.. she will be embalmed, remaining in her home and voting but that is what all dead Dems do.
      I love the visual Peter…I wonder if they will prop her eyes open.
