September 25, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized after feeling sick after work Thursday night according to a statement from the Supreme Court. Ginsburg, who is 76, fell ill after getting her intravenous treatment for iron deficiency, which is part of her ongoing treatment for pancreatic cancer. Ginsburg “developed light headedness and fatigue,” the statement said, but felt better after being attended to by a physician for the court, but went to the Washington Hospital Center just to be safe. Ginsburg, had surgery for pancreatic cancer back in February.  Appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993, Ginsburg has kept a busy schedule throughout her cancer battle, and says she has no plans of retiring for years to come.
