Journal Pioneer - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON - The Supreme Court says 85-year-old Jus­tice Ruth Bader Gins­burg is home after be­ing re­leased from the hospi­tal. She had been ad­mit­ted for treat­ment and ob­ser­va­tion after frac­tur­ing three ribs in a fall.

The court said Gins­burg was re­leased Fri­day. Supreme Court spokes­woman Kathy Ar­berg says she is “do­ing well” and work­ing from home.

The court had pre­vi­ously said the jus­tice fell in her of­fice at the court on Wed­nes­day evening and went to Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Univer­sity Hospi­tal in Wash­ing­ton early Thurs­day after ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dis­com­fort overnight. Gins­burg broke two ribs in a fall in 2012. She had two prior bouts with can­cer and had a stent im­planted to open a blocked artery in 2014.
