Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized for "observation and treatment" after she fell and fractured three ribs, a court spokeswoman says.

In 2012, Ginsburg disclosed to a reporter that she had recently broken two ribs in a fall but did not take time off because of the court's heavy workload at the time.

A statement from the court said that Ginsburg returned home Wednesday night but went to the hospital early Thursday after "experiencing discomfort overnight".

Prior to her appointment, Ms Ginsburg focused her work on women's rights and started the first law journal dedicated to the topic.

The 85-year-old fractured three ribs on her left side from the fall, according to a press release.
