Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after a taking a tumble in her chambers at the Supreme Court last night. After "experiencing discomfort overnight", she went to a hospital on Thursday morning.

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. The hospital determined that "fractured three ribs on her left side". She also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg speaks after receiving the American Law Institute's Henry J. Friendly Medal in Washington, DC, on May 14, 2018.

Ginsburg was admitted to the hospital for treatment and observation after tests showed she broke three ribs.

This report will be updated as further information becomes available.

The Republican president was scheduled to go to the court on Thursday for a formal ceremony seating Kavanaugh.

Ginsburg has served on the court for 25 years.

The Supreme Court has never needed the Notorious RBG more than it needs her now. "I hope she has a full and speedy recovery".

There's precedent for her lengthy service, as Justices Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. and John Paul Stevens were both 90 when they retired.
