Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States leaves the hospital after fracturing three ribs



Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, left the hospital after being admitted for fracturing three ribs, the country's highest court announced today.

"Judge Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital, she is making good progress and plans to work from home today," high court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said in a statement.

Ginsburg, the most progressive judge in the room, had to be hospitalized after suffering a fall on Wednesday in her office.

The tests to which she was subjected showed that the judge suffered fractures in three ribs on the left side of her body.

Ginsburg has spent the last 25 years in the Supreme Court, where she arrived in 1993 as the second woman in history in this court, after a career devoted to feminist causes and civil rights.

The health of the magistrate, due to her advanced age, has the country in suspense, especially the progressive ranks, who fear that if Ginsburg leaves the Supreme Court, his substitute will be chosen by the president, Donald Trump, to expand the already existing conservative majority of the most important court in the country.

The Supreme Court is composed of nine judges with lifetime positions, currently 5 conservatives and 4 progressives. The magistrates are appointed by the president and then confirmed by the Senate, where the Republicans have a majority.

Trump has nominated two judges in less than two years, an unusual rhythm to choose judges who usually remain in office for decades.
