Justice Ginsburg hospitalized after fracturing ribs in fall

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized early Thursday morning after fracturing three ribs during a fall in her office Wednesday night, the court said.

Ginsburg, 85, initially went home after the accident, which occurred in her Supreme Court office. Ginsburg in 2012 fractured two ribs in a fall and remained mum about the incident for several months. She is still in the hospital for "observation and treatment".

Ginsburg, who has served on the court since 1993, is the oldest of the nine justices and one of the court's four liberals.

But Ginsburg, the court's oldest sitting justice, has consistently been adamant that she has had no intentions of retiring.
