Jus­tice Ruth Bader Gins­burg was hos­pi­tal­ized Thurs­day morn­ing with three bro­ken ribs af­ter fall­ing in her of­fice Wed­nes­day evening, a spokes­woman said.

Gins­burg, 85, went home af­ter her fall, but ex­pe­ri­enced dis­com­fort dur­ing the night. She was ad­mit­ted to Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal, where doc­tors found three bro­ken ribs on her left side, Kathy Ar­berg, a Supreme Court spokes­woman, said in a state­ment.

The next sit­ting of the Supreme Court be­gins Nov. 26, and Gins­burg’s his­tory sug­gests the in­juries are not likely to keep her away. She broke two ribs in 2012, with­out miss­ing work. And she re­turned to work quickly af­ter un­der­go­ing a heart pro­ce­dure in 2012. She is also a can­cer sur­vivor and re­turned to work less than three weeks af­ter hav­ing surgery.
