Ruth Bader Ginsburg: US Supreme Court judge fractures ribs in fall

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Sundance

WASHINGTON-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the Supreme Court was hospitalized Thursday morning with three broken ribs after falling in her office Wednesday evening, a spokeswoman said.

The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg experienced discomfort overnight and went to the hospital this morning, where she was admitted for observation and treatment.

The 85-year-old justice reportedly fell in her office at the Court Wednesday night. The hospital determined that "fractured three ribs on her left side". In 2014, Ginsburg had a stent placed in her right coronary artery and has survived cancer multiple times.

'You are a rude, bad person'
The exchange between Trump and CNN's professional provocateur quickly escalated, which ended up with Trump embarrassing Acosta. The network said while Trump doesn't respect a free press, he has the constitutional responsibility to protect it.

Should Ginsburg or any of the other three liberal justices step down while President Donald Trump is in office, that crucial advantage at the highest level of the judicial branch of the US government could grow even larger. President Donald Trump and new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker were on hand.

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

For what it's worth, Ginsburgh apparently has no plans of stepping down, and has even hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020.

Ginsburg, who was appointed by president Bill Clinton in 1993, is one of four liberal justices on the nine-member court.
