DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Ginsburg discharged from hospital
WASHINGTON – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital Friday after treatment for three broken ribs suffered in a fall at her office Wednesday evening.
“She is doing well and plans to work from home today,” said Kathleen Arberg, a spokeswoman for the court.
If history is any guide, Ginsburg will be on the bench at the next sitting of the Supreme Court, which begins Nov. 26.
In 2012, she broke two ribs without missing work. Two years later, she returned to work quickly after undergoing a heart procedure.
She has had cancer twice, and has attributed her survival partly to the medical care she received at the National Institutes of Health.
Ginsburg, 85, is the senior member of the court’s fourmember liberal wing. She has repeatedly vowed to stay on the court as long as her health holds and she stays mentally sharp.
