Justice Ginsburg Released after Hospital Stay

She will require further non-surgical treatment.

After an overnight stay for treatment of a gallstone, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from a Maryland hospital on Wednesday. A Supreme Court statement said that she is “doing well and glad to be home.” It is anticipated that Justice Ginsburg will receive further treatment for the condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore in the near future.

The 87 year-old justice participated in the first ever Supreme Court conference call from the hospital on Wednesday morning. The unprecedented decision to hear arguments via phone was launched this week in order to keep cases moving forward in the midst of the pandemic. The next scheduled oral arguments are also to be held by a conference call of the Supreme Court on Monday May 11.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Justice Ginsburg to receive successful treatment for her condition.
  • That God would give the Supreme Court wisdom as they deliberate the cases they hear.
  • For the justices to remain healthy as they takes precautions against the pandemic.
