Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg released from hospital after fracturing three ribs in fall  3 Days ago

Source:   USA Today  

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Friday morning, a day after being admitted with fractured ribs suffered in a fall.

Ginsburg, 85, "is doing well and plans to work from home today," court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg announced.

The justice, a 25-year veteran of the nation's highest court and a cultural icon among liberals and proponents of women's rights, fell in her office Wednesday night. She went home but experienced discomfort overnight and was driven early Thursday to George Washington University Hospital, where she was found to have fractured three ribs on her left side.

Ginsburg was forced to miss the formal investiture ceremony for new Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at the court later Thursday morning. But by that night, she was said to be working in her hospital room, according to cast members of the upcoming RBG biopic "On the Basis of Sex."

Court-watchers on the left and right are attuned to Ginsburg's health because of her status as the leader of the court's liberal wing. President Donald Trump's two high court appointees have created a solid 5-4 conservative majority for the first time in decades, and Senate Republicans have the votes to confirm his judicial nominees for the next two years at least.

Ginsburg, however, has shown few signs of slowing down, physically or mentally. She survived colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009, received a stent in a heart procedure in 2014 and has been injured in previous falls. None of those incidents have kept her off the bench.

On Tuesday, the court announced its first opinion from an argued case of the 2018 term. For the third consecutive year, it was written by Ginsburg.
