Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized on Tuesday because of what the Supreme Court said was a "benign gallbladder condition" that caused an infection.


A release from the court described her condition as acute cholecystitis. She received non-surgical treatment for the condition on Tuesday afternoon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, according to the court.

"Following oral arguments on Monday, the Justice underwent outpatient tests at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., that confirmed she was suffering from a gallstone that had migrated to her cystic duct, blocking it and causing an infection," it explained. "The Justice is resting comfortably and plans to participate in the oral argument teleconference tomorrow morning remotely from the hospital. She expects to stay in the hospital for a day or two. Updates will be provided as they become available."
