Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fractures 3 ribs in fall

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fractured three ribs after she fell in her office on Wednesday night.

"She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital early this morning", the court said in a statement.

Since Supreme Court appointments are for life, it is Ginsburg's right to remain in office as long as she can fulfill her duties. Ginsburg in 2012 fractured two ribs in a fall and remained mum about the incident for several months.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg speaks after receiving the American Law Institute's Henry J. Friendly Medal in Washington, DC, on May 14, 2018.

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

This report will be updated as further information becomes available.

President Donald Trump has appointed two justices to the court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, since taking office.

But she has never missed Supreme Court arguments.

That said, it would probably be healthy for her to resign. "My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years". "When I can't do the job full-steam".
