Judge Thomas will miss Monday’s Supreme Court hearing without explanation

WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas was absent from court on Monday without any explanation.

Thomas, 75, also did not participate in arguments remotely, as judges sometimes do when they are ill or otherwise unable to attend in person.

Chief Justice John Roberts announced Thomas’ absence and said his colleague would still participate in the day’s business, based on the summaries and transcripts of the arguments. The court sometimes, but not always, says when a judge is ill.

Thomas was hospitalized two years ago with an infection, which forced him to miss several court hearings. He also took part in the business at that time.

He has the longest tenure of the current justices, joining the Supreme Court in 1991.
