After being overcome by chills and fever on Friday afternoon, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Hospital last night according to a statement released by the Court.
The 86-year-old Justice was first examined at Washington, DC’s Sibley Memorial Hospital before she was transferred to the more extensive facility in Baltimore for additional evaluation and treatment, according to CNN.
Justice Ginsburg is reportedly responding well to treatment and is expected to be discharged from the hospital as soon as Sunday morning.
This is a developing story, so you can expect more details to emerge shortly.
The Twitter response to the news showed the extent of people’s concern about Justice Ginsburg’s health and her continued presence on the court.
