U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg returned to her office on Friday for the first time since undergoing surgery to remove cancerous nodules from her lungs.

The 85-year-old justice had been working at home for the first time in her 25 years on the nation’s highest court. In two months of recovery, she only missed six days of arguments and three private conferences.
