Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Tuesday with a "benign gallbladder condition" that led to an infection. She was treated without surgery and is "resting comfortably," a statement from the Supreme Court reads.
Justice Ginsburg is planning on working from her hospital room Wednesday, and will hear oral arguments via teleconference, as all Justices are given the coronavirus pandemic.
