Fans of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ought to brace themselves – she’s in the hospital. Fortunately, it’s not terribly serious – it’s the result of an infection caused by a gallstone.
The 87-year-old is resting comfortably and plans to take part in oral arguments today via teleconference. According to the high court, she'll be in the hospital for a couple days – and it’s expected she’ll be just fine.
It’s been a big week for Justice Ginsburg. Aside from hearing arguments via streaming audio for the first time in history, she apparently underwent non-surgical treatment for the benign issue at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore as well. Ginsburg has suffered a number of health scares in the past, including recent bouts with cancer.
