DEVELOPING: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized After Fall, Fractures 3 Ribs

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg taken to hospital after fall Ginsburg in June 2017

The 85-year-old justice reportedly fell in her office at the Court Wednesday night. After "experiencing discomfort overnight", she went to a hospital on Thursday morning.

If Ginsburg steps down during the Trump administration, the president will choose another appointee, likely tilting the court further toward the right. She previously had two bouts with cancer and had a stent placed to open a blocked artery in 2014. President Donald Trump and new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker were on hand. She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009. She was the second woman to ever be confirmed to the Supreme Court, after retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

The next sitting of the Supreme Court begins on November 26, and Ginsburg's history suggests the injuries are not likely to keep her away. The extent of Ginsburg's injury was not clear. Broken ribs typically heal on their own in six weeks to a month, and patients are advised to limit strenuous activity. A chief complication is pneumonia, when patients don't breathe deeply enough or cough enough because of the rib pain.

As one of the court's older members, Ginsburg's health has become the subject of much attention in recent years.

In the past decade, Ginsburg has transformed into something of a liberal icon, earning the nickname "The Notorious RBG" and appearing on late night television shows including the "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert, where she showed off her workout routine.
