Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continued to recover from a serious fall at home this week; missing a new session as she heals from three fractured ribs.
“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not on the bench Tuesday for a session, after sustaining a fall last week and fracturing three ribs,” writes Fox News. “The high court met for a non-argument session Tuesday morning, less than one week after the 85-year-old justice fell in her Supreme Court office.”
“Justice Ginsburg will not be on the Bench this morning for the non-argument session,” the Court said in a statement Tuesday. “She continues to improve and is working from home this morning.”
Ginsburg was taken to George Washington University Hospital last Thursday after falling in her Supreme Court office. She previously broke two ribs in a similar incident in 2012 and has battled two cancer diagnoses.

IT WAS THAT BAD: Even Justice Ginsburg Says Kavanaugh Hearings Were ‘WRONG’ for America
Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg weighed-in Wednesday on Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation hearings; saying the current partisan antics were “wrong” for the country.
Ginsburg was speaking at the George Washington University in Washington, DC this week when she was asked to comment on Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, simply saying “the way it is, is wrong.”
“The way it was, was right,” said Ginsburg. “The way it is, is wrong. The atmosphere in ’93 was truly bipartisan.”
Ginsburg was confirmed by the US Senate in 1993 by a bipartisan vote of 96-3 despite widespread concerns regarding her 10 year career on the ACLU board.
