Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized yet again, this time with chills and a fever. The octogenarian jurist was pumped with IV fluids and antibiotics.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg returned home Sunday, following a brief hospitalization for chills and fever.
The 86-year-old justice was admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, for evaluation and treatment of possible infections, according to a Saturday night statement from the high court. A Court spokesperson said Sunday that Ginsburg is “home and doing well.”
Saturday’s hospitalization is the latest in a series of health problems Ginsburg has had to manage in the past 12 months. Those trials began in November 2018, when she fell in her chambers at the high court and fractured three ribs.
Ginsburg has also been missing oral arguments recently, as well. Look, I get the woman is under tremendous pressure to stay on the bench so Orange Man Bad doesn’t get to pick another nominee, but this is getting ridiculous. The woman’s health is deteriorating, and her hospital stays have become more frequent. Is her life more important than a SCOTUS position, Democrats?
