Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not appear at the court on Tuesday as she continues to recover from a fall that left her with broken ribs.
“She continues to improve and is working from home this morning,” said Kathy Arberg, a spokeswoman for the court.
Ginsburg fell at her office Wednesday and was admitted to George Washington University Hospital early Thursday morning, where tests revealed three fractures on her left side. She was discharged on Friday and worked from home, the court said.
The health of the 85-year-old liberal justice, the court’s eldest, has been a matter of intense public concern in recent years. Her absence from the court would likely be filled by a conservative jurist appointed by President Donald Trump.
But Ginsburg has said recently that she plans to stay on the bench until she is at least 90. The former ACLU attorney has overcome a number of medical difficulties while on the bench with few signs of slowing down.
