Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announced Friday she is battling cancer again, just days after she was hospitalized for a possible infection.
The 87-year-old Ginsburg, a four-time cancer survivor who announced in January that she was cancer-free, said a periodic scan and a biopsy revealed lesions on her liver, but chemotherapy treatment that began in May is “yielding positive results.” Her most recent scan last week showed “significant reduction” of the lesions, the justice said in a brief statement.
“I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment,” Ginsburg said. “I will continue bi-weekly chemotherapy to keep my cancer at bay, and am able to maintain an active daily routine. Throughout, I have kept up with opinion writing and all other court work.”
Hayden Panettiere’s Ex Brian Hickerson Arrested and Charged With Domestic Violence and Assault
Hayden Panettiere‘s ex-boyfriend Brian Hickerson has been arrested on charges of domestic violence and assault.
A source familiar with the legal process tells ET that Hickerson was charged Thursday night in an eight-count felony complaint alleging domestic violence and assault. He was booked the same day, and his bail is set at $320,000.
Panettiere recently reported to the Teton County Sheriff in Wyoming, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Santa Monica Police Department multiple serious instances of extreme domestic violence perpetrated by Hickerson during their year-and-a-half-long relationship, the source adds.
“I am coming forward with the truth about what happened to me with the hope that my story will empower others in abusive relationships to get the help they need and deserve,” Panettiere said in a statement following Hickerson’s arrest. “I am prepared to do my part to make sure this man never hurts anyone again. I’m grateful for my support system, which helped me find the courage to regain my voice and my life.”
