Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to hospital for possible infection
A Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized on Tuesday for possible infection, a court spokeswoman said.

The judge, 87, received treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after experiencing fever and chills. Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said in a statement that the woman had undergone an operation to clean the bile duct and will remain in hospital "for a few days".

"The judge will rest comfortably and will remain in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment."

Ginsburg, the oldest Supreme Court judge, has suffered from a host of health cases in recent years. She said in January that she was "cancer-free" after undergoing treatment for what may be pancreatic cancer last year.

Last year, she underwent cancerous growth treatment on her lungs.

Ginsburg and the rest of the court just concluded a series of work, and issued rulings on President Donald Trump's financial records, LGBTQ rights, and the president's efforts to close the Obama-era program to protect dreamers from deportation and abortion rights, among other topics, in a two-week period.

President Bill Clinton appointed Ginsburg, a liberal editor, to the highest US court in 1993. The court now has a conservative majority 5-4 - although it frustrated some of Trump's priorities in his recent decisions, which angered the president.
