U.S. Supreme Court

Ginsburg

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday morning after falling in her office and breaking three ribs.

Ginsburg fell Wednesday night in her court office, then went home, according to a press release. She went to George Washington University Hospital early Thursday morning after experiencing discomfort overnight. Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side.

The 85-year-old justice was admitted to the hospital for observation and treatment.

Publications with coverage include the Hill, the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Ginsburg fans expressed support and concern on Twitter. “Is rib donation a thing? If it is, I volunteer,” wrote one supporter.

Ginsburg said in July she hopes to stay at least five more years on the Supreme Court. She has survived colon and pancreatic cancer. She also had heart stent surgery in 2014 to open a blockage in a coronary artery.

Ginsburg is known for her rigorous workout routine with a personal trainer. According to coverage from February 2017, Ginsburg bench presses 70 pounds on the weight machine and lifts 12 pounds when doing dumbbell curls. She also does 20 pushups—and not the kind done with knees on the ground.

According to the Associated Press, Ginsburg’s accident will not delay a planned courtroom ceremony to officially welcome Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the court. President Donald Trump and the new acting attorney general, Mark Whitaker, are scheduled to attend the Kavanaugh ceremony.
