Ginsburg is released from hospital after fracturing ribs
WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Friday after having been admitted for treatment and observation after fracturing three ribs in a fall.
Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said the 85-year-old justice is “doing well” and working from home.
Ginsburg, the Supreme Court’s oldest 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, the court said.
Ginsburg has persevered on the bench despite several health issues.
She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012. She also had separate bouts with colon and pancreatic cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014.
