Kimmel unveils bubble for Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has left the hospital after she was taken to George Washington University Hospital after suffering a fall on Wednesday night. Given the sensitivity of the rib area, he said, they will likely take it easy for a while, "and then we'll pick back up just like we usually do".

"The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes", Mr. Stiepleman told the outlet, "I can't promise they were good jokes but they were jokes".

The 85-year-old is the eldest justice on the highest court, and the injury has caused some to question how long she will hold her position.

Ginsburg is the Supreme Court's oldest justice, and one of four judges considered to be liberal on the nine-seat court. She was treated for colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and underwent a heart procedure in 2014.

Pack said Taylor's body could arrive in Utah as soon as Wednesday or Thursday. "News of his death in Afghanistan is devastating". And, Rahmani added, Taylor taught him to "love my wife Hamida as an equal and treat my children as treasured gifts".

The Supreme Court's next session is scheduled for November 26.

In 2012, Ginsburg, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, broke two ribs in a fall.

Despite her health issues, the justice has not missed any work and still continued to exercise regularly.

She already has hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020, indicating she has no plans to retire.
