Breaking news from the Supreme Court who are announcing tonight that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital on Friday night after suffering with chills and fever.

From Fox News:

Ginsburg, 86, was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., before being transferred to Johns Hopkins for further evaluation and treatment of any possible infection, the Supreme Court said in a press release.

Her symptoms have abated after intravenous antibiotics and fluids and she is expected to be released from the hospital as early as Sunday morning, according to the release.

Glad to hear that she is doing better and that she’ll likely be out tomorrow.

It’s curious that they didn’t announce it last night as it happened, that they’ve only made the announcement now that they’ve determined she’s doing better.

Sounds like they’re very much trying to manage the news and not worry people.

Many on both sides of the aisle wished her well on social media.

She was out with a stomach illness last week and missed an oral argument.

She’s had a series of illnesses recently including two separate cancer bouts, with lung cancer in January and a tumor in her pancreas in August.

Ginsburg is the oldest justice on the Supreme Court.
