Justice Ginsburg is hospitalized with broken ribs after fall

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Sundance

Ginsburg has served on the court since 1993 and is the oldest of the nine justices.

Justice Ginsburg previously fractured ribs in a fall back in 2012. Ruth also had a stent placed in her coronary artery in November 2014.

The president and first lady Melania Trump are scheduled to attend a meet-and-greet with Supreme Court justices Thursday morning, followed by the investiture ceremony for Kavanaugh.

In 1999, just six years after being sworn in as an associate justice, Ginsburg successfully underwent surgery to treat colon cancer.

Chief Justice John Roberts has remarked in the past about Ginsburg's speedy delivery of opinions.

Ginsburg, 85, the oldest member of the high court, is known to keep working until all hours of the night, but she returned home after her fall. She later apologized for what she said were inappropriate remarks. "Um, God take me instead?" said another.

Ginsburg said in July she hopes to stay on the bench past 2020.

With Brett Kavanaugh having been sworn in last month to succeed swing-vote Anthony Kennedy, many on the left have been closely monitoring Ginsburg's health.

"Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. She is a true force of nature, an extraordinary human being and we need her on the Supreme Court more than ever". The extent of Ginsburg's injury was not clear at press time.

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".

Another person wrote: 'GoFundMe for a 20-foot thick bubble wrap inside which Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be placed for at least two years'.
