Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after fracturing three ribs on her left side in a fall at her office a day earlier, the court said in a news release. She went to George Washington University Hospital on Thursday morning.

The court says the fall occurred Wednesday evening. According to a statement from the Supreme Court, doctors admitted Ginsburg for further "observation and treatment".

She was appointed to the court by former president Bill Clinton in 1993. President Trump is among the dignitaries planning to attend the ceremony at the court.

Ginsburg has survived a series of health scares.

Prince William said "when he's there, he's brilliant" but "we need him there as much as possible". Prince Charles also found Markle as incredibly smart the first time they met each other.

But she has never missed Supreme Court arguments. The severity depends in part on whether the ribs are cracked or broken all the way through, and how many are broken. A chief complication is pneumonia, when patients don't breathe deeply enough or cough enough because of the rib pain.

Ginsburg is already five years past the average retirement age of the past 11 justices and is three years older than the recently retired justice Anthony M. Kennedy. However, she reportedly hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020, indicating she has no plans to retire.

Ginsburg has grit and determination, and I only wish she applied that to upholding the plain text and original meaning of the Constitution, rather than toward twisting it to fit liberal Progressive pipe dreams.
