Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized early Thursday morning after fracturing three ribs during a fall in her office Wednesday night, the court said.

Ginsburg, 85, went home after the fall, which happened Wednesday evening, but chose to go to the hospital "after experiencing discomfort overnight", the court said in a statement. She is still in the hospital for "observation and treatment".

"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office at the Court last evening", reads the press release from the pubic information office. President Trump is among the dignitaries planning to attend the ceremony at the court.

Ginsburg has had a series of health problems. In November 2014, she had a stent placed in her right coronary artery after experiencing discomfort while exorcising at the Supreme Court gym. Broken ribs typically heal on their own in six weeks to a month, and patients are advised to limit strenuous activity.

It means Ms Ginsburg will not be present for Thursday's investiture of new Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh, whose appointment led to protests following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Ginsburg's heath has been the subject of public concern as the court's oldest justice is one of four liberals on the bench.
