  • Kimmel unveils bubble for Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been released from the hospital days after a nasty fall left her with three fractured ribs. Before the offers had subsided, Ginsburg was already back home, her strength no doubt bolstered by her faithful workouts with Johnson.

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Ginsburg planned to work from home Friday.

Ginsburg took a fall in her office at the court Wednesday evening and was taken to George Washington University Hospital in Washington on Thursday for treatment.


On Friday morning, before the Supreme Court announced her release from the hospital, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that he had good wishes for the leader of the court's liberal wing, despite harsh words between them previously. She was treated for colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and underwent a heart procedure in 2014. Johnson is also the author of The RBG Workout: How She Stays Strong ... and You Can Too!

Ginsburg was appointed in 1993 by former President Bill Clinton.

Ginsburg's fall meant that she missed the largely ceremonial swearing in of new Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who repeated the judicial oath Thursday in front of Trump and other government officials following a divisive confirmation process, during which he faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
