Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday morning after fracturing three ribs during a fall in her office Wednesday night, the Washington Post reports. Ginsburg, 85, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital for observation and treatment.

The court said Ginsburg returned home Wednesday night but went to the hospital  after “experiencing discomfort overnight.” Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side. Given the 5-to-4 split on the court in conservatives’ favor on many controversial issues, court watchers are keeping a close eye on the health of the justices.
