Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg home and doing well after being hospitalized with fever

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was home and “doing well” after being hospitalized with a fever, a court spokeswoman said Sunday.

The four-time cancer survivor was admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Friday night to treat a possible infection after going to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington earlier in the day with chills and a high temperature. 

Her condition improved after she was treated with intravenous antibiotics and fluids, the court said in a statement on Saturday. 

Ginsburg, 86, has said she will stay on the bench “as long as I’m healthy and mentally agile.” She often participates in oral arguments, but this year she had to miss some of them for the first time in her career due to health problems. She missed one day earlier this month when she was sidelined by a stomach illness
