The treatment is yielding “positive results.” The liberal justice, 87, said she remains “fully able” to continue in her post. Owing to her age and long medical history, Ginsburg’s health is the subject of widespread interest given her status as a liberal icon. The prospect that President Donald Trump could name a third justice to the Supreme Court would also be a major election issue.
