Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is “up and working” after being hospitalized with three rib fractures, her nephew said during a Thursday film premiere about his aunt’s career.
Daniel Stiepleman told Reuters in Los Angeles that Ginsburg was “doing great” following a fall a day earlier in her Supreme Court office.
Ginsburg, 85, previously fractured two ribs in 2012 and had two prior bouts with cancer, among other health issues, but has yet to miss a day of oral arguments during her tenure on the court.
Stiepleman wrote the script for “On the Basis of Sex,” which details his aunt’s work as a young lawyer fighting for women’s equality.
The film details a landmark 1972 gender-based discrimination case in which Ginsburg and her tax attorney husband, Martin were involved.
