And finally… personal judgement

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has raised eyebrows after it emerged she is continuing to use the court’s private gym in spite of the coronavirus pandemic.

As of this week, the 87-year-old judge is still apparently meeting personal trainer Bryant Johnson twice a week for planks, push-ups and weight training, Law360 reports.

The court itself is currently closed to the public due to the spread of COVID-19 and oral arguments before its justices have been indefinitely postponed.

However, a spokesperson said the court had set aside “limited private space” in the gym for Justice Ginsburg at her own request.

Justice Ginsburg was treated for a cancerous tumour last autumn, the latest in a series of health problems which place her at greater risk of serious illness if she contracts COVID-19.
