Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after falling in her office and fracturing three ribs.
The court said her fall happened Wednesday evening. “She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital early this morning,” the court said in a press release. “Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment.”


Justice Ginsburg, 85 years old, is the oldest member of the court and the senior liberal justice, and has served since President Clinton appointed her in 1993.
