Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg falls
Nov 08, 2018
Today the 85-year-old liberal (“progressive”) Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office, fracturing three ribs.
Rib fractures are painful. It raises the question about her continuing to remain on the Supreme Court. Recently, she had said that she plans to remain until she is 90 so she can continue to support the liberal agendas. But this new injury might dampen her determination to stay.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after fracturing three ribs on her left side in a fall at her office a day earlier, the court said in a news release.
Ginsburg, 85, initially went home after the accident, which occurred in her Supreme Court office. But she later reported experiencing some discomfort, and was admitted to George Washington University Hospital "for observation and treatment…."
Ginsburg is the court's oldest member and there's been a great deal of speculation on when she may retire. However, she reportedly hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020, indicating she has no plans to leave soon.
If Ginsburg retires, President Trump will have opportunity to nominate her replacement at a time when the Senate is solidly in the hands of the Republican Party which, since this week’s election, has been purged of RINO’s. (Republicans In Name Only)
