Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was just hospitalized with an “infection” according to the SCOTUS.

Ginsburg, who has had a slew of health scares lately, reportedly underwent a non-surgical procedure for a “gallbladder condition” on Tuesday night and is reportedly “resting comfortably,” according to a court spokeswoman.

Ginsburg, who is 87-years-old had a gallstone that caused the infection. She was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Tuesday with an infection caused by a gallstone, the Supreme Court said.

The 87-year-old justice underwent non-surgical treatment for what the court described as acute cholecystitis, a benign gall bladder condition, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

She expects to be in the hospital for a day or two, the court said.

As always, we wish Justice Ginsburg a speedy recovery.
