Ginsburg working from home after fall

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is still recovering from a fall last week, missed a sitting of the court on Tuesday morning.

The Supreme Court’s Public Information Office said Ginsburg, 85, was working from home Tuesday.

“She continues to improve and is working from home this morning,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said.

Ginsburg fractured three ribs after falling in her office Wednesday night. She went home after the incident, but called Supreme Court Police to take her to the hospital early Thursday morning after experiencing discomfort overnight.

She was released from George Washington University Hospital on Friday, and the court’s public information office said then that she was doing well. 

The court did not have any arguments scheduled for Tuesday. The justices were on the bench to release orders. The court is not scheduled to hear arguments again until after Thanksgiving.
