Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized Thursday after falling in her office; fracturing three ribs on her left side and requiring immediate medical attention.

A press release from the Supreme Court press office said Justice Ginsburg was taken to George Washington University Hospital Thursday morning, after "experiencing discomfort overnight".

Since Supreme Court appointments are for life, it is Ginsburg's right to remain in office as long as she can fulfill her duties. She has also reportedly hired law clerks through 2020, sending the message that she plans on sticking around.

It's too early for any word on Justice Ginsburg's path to recovery just yet - but definitely makes ya think.
