Ruth Bader Ginsburg undergoes emergency surgery

From McClatchy News:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has undergone surgery for an apparent early stage pancreatic cancer, the court’s public information office is reporting.

The 75-year-old Ginsburg underwent the surgery at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Her attending physician, Dr. Murray Brennan, (ed note: Dr. Brennan is one of the premiere surgeons in the country) said Justice Ginsburg would probably remain in the hospital for between seven and 10 days.

Ginsburg reported having no symptoms prior to the discovery of a lesion during a routine annual check up in January at the National Institutes of Health. A scan found a small tumor, approximately one centimeter across, in the center of the pancreas.

Ginsburg has served on the Supreme Court since being appointed by President Clinton in 1993. The graduate of Cornell University and Columbia Law School is one of the most liberal members of the court.
