Ginsburg is back at Supreme Court after surgery

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back at work at a public session of the Supreme Court, 18 days after undergoing surgery for pancreatic cancer.

Ginsburg entered the marble courtroom with her eight male colleagues just after 10 o'clock Monday morning as Supreme Court Marshal Pamela Talkin began the traditional chant that announces the start of court: "Oyez. Oyez. Oyez ..."

Ginsburg was in her typical court dress consisting of a black robe and white lace collar. She took her seat between Justices David Souter and Samuel Alito.
