Ruth Bader Ginsburg Taken to DC Hospital After Fall at Court

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been taken to the George Washington University hospital in Washington, D.C. Thursday for "observation and treatment" after taking a fall in court Wednesday night. She has reportedly broken three of her ribs.

Ginsburg, 85, fell in her chambers Wednesday. She went home for the night because she didn't think it was that serious, NBC News explains.

Ginsburg was planning to be in court today for the formal welcome ceremony for newest Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Instead she will remain in the hospital.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
