Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had emergency heart surgery and is recuperating, the court says. From Bloomberg:
The 81-year-old Ginsburg, a two-time cancer survivor, is expected to be released in the next 48 hours, the court said in a one-paragraph statement. She was hospitalized after experiencing discomfort last night during exercise at the court, and doctors discovered a blockage in her right coronary artery.
Staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center placed a stent in that artery.
