Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has been admitted to George Washington University Hospital after falling in her court office and fracturing three ribs.

It means Ms Ginsburg will not be present for Thursday's investiture of new Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh, whose appointment led to protests following allegations of sexual misconduct.

If Ginsburg were unable to continue serving on the court, Trump would likely move swiftly to replace her with a conservative, further shifting the court to the right.

Should Ginsburg or any of the other three liberal justices step down while President Donald Trump is in office, that crucial advantage at the highest level of the judicial branch of the US government could grow even larger. Tests showed she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment, according to a statement from the court.




The Daily Wire will provide updates as they come in.

Ginsburg was appointed in 1993 and is the oldest justice on the panel. She was the second woman to ever be confirmed to the Supreme Court, after retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

"I will retire when it's time", Ginsburg told NPR's Nina Totenberg in 2016. The next oldest justice is Stephen Breyer, who is 83.

That said, it would probably be healthy for her to resign. "When I can't do the job full-steam".
