The court said Ginsburg was released Friday.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Friday morning after breaking three ribs in a serious fall earlier this week, according to several reports.

Ginsburg is the Supreme Court's oldest justice, and one of four judges considered to be liberal on the nine-seat court.

"She was admitted to George Washington University Hospital on Thursday morning for observation and treatment". "I can't promise they were good jokes but they were jokes", he said.

Trudeau Apologizes For Canada Turning Away Jewish Refugees On MS St
Louis can not erase the pain suffered by these refugees or those murdered in the Holocaust or their descendants. Standing in the Canadian parliament chamber, Trudeau spoke in both English and French as he apologized.

At 85, Justice Ginsburg has made no plans to retire from her Supreme Court seat, which, if filled by a conservative, would dramatically alter the court's makeup for decades to come.

The news of Ginsburg's injury brought such distress to her supporters that they immediately began offering whatever rib or organ she needed to survive.

In 2012, she fell and broke two ribs, and in 2009 she was hospitalized after a negative reaction to medication. "I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years". I wouldn't say she's exactly on my side. The court is now divided 5-4 in favor of conservatives, and the Republican-controlled Senate is poised to confirm any of Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court appointments for the next two years.

Ginsburg, who was appointed by president Bill Clinton in 1993, was the second woman to be named to the nation's highest court.
