Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized With Fractured Ribs After Fall

The supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after fracturing three ribs in fall at court.

According to a Court spokesperson (via CNN's Manu Raju), Ginsburg has fractured three ribs in the fall. She went to George Washington University Hospital in Washington early Thursday after experiencing discomfort overnight.

It means Ms Ginsburg will not be present for Thursday's investiture of new Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh, whose appointment led to protests following allegations of sexual misconduct. Ginsburg in 2012 fractured two ribs in a fall and remained mum about the incident for several months. President Donald Trump and new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker were expected to attend.

Justice Ginsburg, a liberal who is the court's senior justice, has served for more than 25 years after being appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993.

Ginsburg, 85, initially went home after the accident, which occurred in her Supreme Court office.

She already has hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020, indicating she has no plans to retire.
