On Wednesday night, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell, cracking three ribs and getting rushed to the hospital, the Associated Press reported.

"A$3 fter experiencing discomfort overnight", she was admitted to Goerge Washington University Hospital on Thursday morning. But she felt discomfort overnight and chose to go to the hospital early Thursday morning - where she has been admitted for observation and treatment. "Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment". In February 2009, she underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer and returned to the bench later that very month. In 2012, Ginsburg fractured two ribs.

Yankees-Red Sox Series Heats up AL East Race
The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

Ginsburg joined the court in 1993.

During a speaking appearance in NY in July, Ginsburg said she expected to serve on the court for at least five more years.

But she has never missed Supreme Court arguments.

Asked a year ago if she was contemplating retirement, she said, "As long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it". "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". "I hope she has a full and speedy recovery".
