Doctors discovered the broken ribs and she was admitted.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized after she fell in her office and fractured three ribs, the court said Thursday. At 85, she is now the oldest member of the court.

"A$3 fter experiencing discomfort overnight", she was admitted to Goerge Washington University Hospital on Thursday morning. She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012. She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009.

Ginsburg's hospitalization comes on the morning of the formal investiture of the court's newest justice, Brett M. Kavanaugh.

The Daily Wire will provide updates as they come in.

Ginsburg joined the court in 1993.

In the 2018 midterm elections, Republicans won seats in the U.S. Senate, making future Supreme Court confirmation battles easier.

Ginsburg has grit and determination, and I only wish she applied that to upholding the plain text and original meaning of the Constitution, rather than toward twisting it to fit liberal Progressive pipe dreams. The next oldest justice is Stephen Breyer, who is 83.

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 I think I have about at least five more years".
