Supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in hospital after fall at court

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Sundance

Ginsburg, 85, initially went home after the accident, which occurred in her Supreme Court office. She is also a cancer survivor and returned to work less than three weeks after having surgery.

"If Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs any of my bones or internal organs I don't need mine", said actress Leslie Grossman. She has beaten pancreatic and colon cancer, the two deadliest forms of the disease.

The court says the fall occurred Wednesday evening.

In her absence, the court was going ahead Thursday with a courtroom ceremony welcoming new Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who joined the court last month.

Stepping down from the lifetime role would give President Trump the chance to appoint his third supreme court justice in little over two years.

Five men questioned by police over ‘offensive’ Grenfell bonfire video
A video has emerged on social media showing a group laughing at the victims of the fire tragedy while burning a cardboard model. Other comments include that of a man shouting "jump out the window" and another boasting that he "made the burning people".

This was the third consecutive year in which Ms Ginsburg has authored the first opinion of the session - with Chief Justice John Roberts having previously lauded Ms Ginsburg's speedy delivery of opinions.

"I pray for Ruth Bader Ginsberg every day", Democratic Senator Bob Menendez said Sunday.

When she left the bench 12 years ago, O'Connor said she wanted to advance civic learning and engagement. Trump, various administration officials, and other well-placed members of Washington's legal establishment are expected to attend. For many conservative voters, another opportunity to shape the Supreme Court was a big part of what the mid-term election fight was all about.

But these health scares have anxious Democrats who don't want Ginsburg to step down and allow President Trump to appoint his third Supreme Court justice. An additional 3 million older adults sought care in an emergency department for a fall.

Ginsburg, who was the second woman ever nominated to the Supreme Court, has become an icon for women's right movements and advocates.
