Ruth Bader Ginsburg Taken to DC Hospital After Fall at Court

At 85, Justice Ginsburg has made no plans to retire from her Supreme Court seat, which, if filled by a conservative, would dramatically alter the court's makeup for decades to come.

Meanwhile, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters she is praying for the elderly justice.

She was admitted for observation and treatment, the court said. She is a survivor of colon cancer and pancreatic cancer.

Ms Ginsburg has survived cancer and in 2012 cracked two ribs in a fall at her home.

The fall happened in her office at the Supreme Court in Washington.

Given her age, some Democrats have expressed concerns about Ginsburg's health.

There's precedent for her lengthy service, as Justices Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. and John Paul Stevens were both 90 when they retired.

The Supreme Court did not release any other details.

But these health scares have anxious Democrats who don't want Ginsburg to step down and allow President Trump to appoint his third Supreme Court justice.

President Donald Trump, who nominated Mr Kavanaugh and described the claims against him as a "hoax", attended his investiture.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg poses for a portrait on Capitol Hill in Washington, March 18, 2015. Fans of Notorious RBG, as she is sometimes known, immediately launched into grief - and action. An additional 3 million older adults sought care in an emergency department for a fall.

At 85 years old, Ruth is the oldest justice in the Supreme Court.

Ms Ginsburg wrote the first opinion of the Supreme Court's term this year on age discrimination.
