Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was hospitalized after a bicycle accident on Friday, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said.

The surgery was successful and Breyer is expected to make a full recovery, Arberg said.

According to the Associated Press, this is not Breyer’s first bike-related injury. The 74-year-old justice broke his collarbone in a 2011 accident, and he broke his ribs and punctured his lung in an incident in 1993, before he was appointed to the court in 1994.
