U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is "up and working" and making jokes after being hospitalized with rib fractures, her nephew said on November 8, at the premiere of a new movie about her early career.
Early the next morning, the justice called Supreme Court police to take her to George Washington University Hospital in Washington.
Updated: Three broken ribs aren't stopping Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from getting some work done.
Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said Ginsburg, 85, is "doing well and plans to work from home today". She's also been a strong advocate for women's rights and gender equality.
Bader Ginsburg has battled multiple health issues in the past, her most recent being a blocked artery in 2014 during which she underwent a procedure to have a stent implanted.

This is the first season in a long time that Calipari won't have to babysit and coach with a pacifier. Kentucky never led in the game while the Blue Devils led by as many as 37 points in the second half.
Ginsburg is 85 years old, so obviously we're going to be anxious about her.
But she has never missed Supreme Court arguments.
As one of four liberal justices on the nine-member court, her loss would give US President Donald Trump another opportunity to reinforce its conservative tilt. "But the fact that she fell, went home, slept, and then thought, 'Gee, I don't feel so good, maybe I better go to the hospital'".
Appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, Ginsburg rebuffed suggestions from some liberals that she should step down in the first two years of President Barack Obama's second term, when Democrats also controlled the Senate and would have been likely to confirm her successor.
She is now the oldest judge on the bench but seemingly has no plans to retire, as she has already hired law clerks for the term that extends into 2020.
