Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized With Fractured Ribs After Fall

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has been admitted to George Washington University Hospital after falling in her court office and fracturing three ribs. After "experiencing discomfort overnight", she went to a hospital on Thursday morning.

According to a Court spokesperson (via CNN's Manu Raju), Ginsburg has fractured three ribs in the fall.

During a speaking appearance in NY in July, Ginsburg said she expected to serve on the court for at least five more years.

The justice married Marty Ginsburg in 1954 and the couple attended Harvard Law School together. She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009.

Democrats on track to take House control, but GOP retains Senate
Democrats will also be able to halt many items on Trump's legislative agenda, border wall funding, and a new middle-class tax cut. Speaker Joe Straus, a San Antonio Republican who ousted a fellow Republican with help from House Democrats in 2009, is retiring.

But Ginsburg, the court's oldest sitting justice, has consistently been adamant that she has had no intentions of retiring.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has appointed two conservative justices to the court, shifting it to the right.

But she has never missed Supreme Court arguments. Updates will be provided as they become available. She later apologized for what she said were inappropriate remarks. "My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years". "I hope she has a full and speedy recovery".
