Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in an interview with CNN on Tuesday that she is cancer free, marking the fourth time she has beaten cancer.

According to CNN, Ginsburg has resumed an active role in oral arguments during hearings.

Ginsburg is one of the four liberal justices on the nation's highest bench. Ginsburg is the second-most experienced member of the Supreme Court, serving as a justice since 1993. Justice Clarence Thomas has been on the Supreme Court since 1991.

Last year, Ginsburg recovered from surgery to treat lung cancer. Later in the year, Ginsburg discovered a tumor on her pancreas, which she had treated in August.
