WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in a Maryland hospital after suffering from chills and a fever, but is expected to be released on Sunday, the Supreme Court said on Saturday.
Ginsburg has faced several health scares over the past year, including in August, when she underwent radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer.
Ginsburg, 86, began experiencing the symptoms earlier on Friday. She went to a hospital in Washington before being transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for more evaluations and treatment of any possible infection, the court said.
But the justice’s symptoms have abated after antibiotics and fluids and she is expected to be released from the hospital on Sunday morning, the court said.
