U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery Friday for early stage lung cancer, NPR reports. Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital in New York performed a lobectomy, removing one of the five lobes of the lung. Prospects look good for a full recovery, and Ginsburg hopes to be back on the court for the start of the next argument session in early January.
