Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was reportedly discharged from the hospital on Wednesday.
Ginsburg is “home and doing well,” according to an emailed statement from the Supreme Court to the Associated Press.
After suffering from a fever and chills, the court’s oldest justice sought medical treatment at a Washington hospital on Monday. She was then moved to Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she underwent a procedure Tuesday to clean out a bile duct stent put in place last year to treat a cancerous tumor on her pancreas, AP reported.
