Justice Ginsburg Released From Hospital


Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from a Washington, D.C.-area hospital on Friday morning after being admitted the previous day for illness following iron deficiency treatment.

Justice Ginsburg was admitted to Washington Hospital Center on a precautionary basis, according to The Wall Street Journal.

"Justice Ginsburg, 76 years old, received an iron sucrose infusion Thursday and later felt light-headed and fatigued," reported The Wall Street Journal. "She was admitted to the hospital 'as a precaution for evaluation,' the court said."

Appointed to the nation's highest court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, Justice Ginsburg generally votes with the liberal wing of the court. She was treated for pancreatic cancer in February, and has reported good health since.

The Supreme Court begins its new term on October 5.
