- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, fell in her office at the court and fractured three ribs, the court says.
- “Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment,” the statement from the court said.
- Ginsburg’s health has been a matter of intense speculation in recent years. Ginsburg, the court’s oldest member, is one of the court’s four liberal justices.
Phi Beta Iota: We will be very surprised if Justice Ginsberg — we pray she recovers ably — returns to work. We strongly favor a female replacement who has not attended Yale or Harvard as the best possible replacement choice.
