Supreme Court Justice Faustino J. Fernandez-Vina recently had eye surgery and is recovering well, according to a statement released this afternoon by Winnie Comfort.
“It is anticipated that an additional surgery will take place in the near future,” Comfort said. “The Justice continues to participate in conference in the Court’s review of petitions for certification, but will not appear on the bench until his recovery is complete. It is anticipated that he will resume hearing oral arguments in a number of months. We wish him continued good health during his recovery.”
