Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is Hospitalized After Fall


Apr 2010
Pittsburgh, PA
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.

All politics aside, here's hoping she has a quick recovery.

She apparently fell down, got back up, went about her day and then finally decided to check herself in after feeling discomfort.

Tough bird. Pretty difficult to do anything at any age with fractured (as opposed to merely cracked) ribs.
That's what I thought. 3 ribs is uncomfortable! Pretty badass.

I wish her a speedy recovery.

Who does Trump have at the top of the list for his next SCOTUS nominee?

And, will he/she be "Kavanaugh'd"?

But, hopefully RBG will get all better soon.

She's 85 and seems very spry for that age...
