Probably the most unusual news from the Supreme Court between October and January was Justice Ginsburg’s absence from two weeks of oral arguments while she recovered from lung cancer surgery. This is the first time the justice has not been on the bench during oral arguments in her 25+ years on the Court. Note, however, that the Court announced that Justice Ginsburg would listen to the arguments and participate in the decisions of those cases. On another front, from October through January, there were no opinions or separate statements by Justice Kavanaugh in any criminal justice cases.
