Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg Treated for Gallbladder Infection

WEDNESDAY, May 6, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been treated in hospital for a gallstone that was causing an infection, the court announced Tuesday.

A statement said the 87-year-old is "resting comfortably" at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after the nonsurgical treatment on Tuesday and is expected to remain there for a day or two, NBC News reported.

Last summer, Ginsberg was treated for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas, and she had surgery for lung cancer in late 2018.

Ginsberg has said she will stay on the Supreme Court as long as her health permits, NBC News reported.
