Doctors discovered the broken ribs and she was admitted.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized following a fall in her office.

RBG's office says she fell Wednesday night while in her SCOTUS office, and even went home thinking she was fine - but, after experiencing some pain overnight, the Justice chose to go to George Washington University Hospital Thursday morning. She initially went home after her fall, but experienced complications overnight. Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side, the statement said.

Ginsburg's hospitalization comes on the morning of the formal investiture of the court's newest justice, Brett M. Kavanaugh. She went to George Washington University Hospital on Thursday morning.

RBG also took a spill back in 2012 and broke 2 ribs that time.

This report will be updated as further information becomes available.

Ginsburg joined the court in 1993.

"I'm now 85", she said.

But she has never missed Supreme Court arguments.

For years, the question of her eventual retirement from the court has spurred speculation and sometimes criticism - some Democrats think Ginsburg should have retired during the Obama administration to ensure that her slot on the court would have been filled by a liberal judge. "I hope she has a full and speedy recovery".

This is a developing story.
