Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has cancelled two scheduled events in New York and Los Angeles to continue recovering from her surgery in December.

Ginsburg was scheduled for a talk on January 29 at the Skirball Cultural Center in L.A. “Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg regrets that she is unable to visit the Skirball on January 29,” the event description now reads. “The Justice is curtailing travel and focusing on her work while recuperating from recent surgery.”

The justice was also set to speak with financier David Rubenstein at the 92nd Street Y center on February 6.

CNN reported the canceled events on Wednesday.

Ginsburg underwent surgery in December to remove cancer in her lungs. The Supreme Court announced January 11 that she had no remaining signs of cancer, though she missed two weeks of oral arguments while in recovery.
