The Supreme Court says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after experiencing chills and fever.

Chicago Tribune reports – In a statement Saturday, the court’s public information office says the 86-year-old Ginsburg was admitted Friday night to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

The court says Ginsburg was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington before being transferred to Johns Hopkins for further evaluation and treatment of any possible infection.

Ginsburg’s first bout with cancer was in February 2009, when U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was diagnosed with a tumor in her pancreas. Ginsburg, who was 75-years old at the time, had her spleen and part of her pancreas removed after a routine CAT scan showed a lesion, measuring about 1 centimeter across, in the center of her pancreas.

Ginsburg’s next bout with cancer less than one year ago, when she was diagnosed and treated for lung cancer. The 86-year-old, far-left Supreme Court Justice was successfully treated for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas.

Just 10 days ago, Ginsburg missed oral arguments on the Supreme Court “due to illness,” according to Chief Justice John Roberts.

In August, Ginsburg was treated for her fourth bout with cancer and later recovered after receiving three weeks of radiation treatment for the cancerous tumor that was found on her pancreas.

Shortly before her treatments began, Ginsburg sat down with the far left NPR, where she joked about the death of a Republican Senator who once told a crowd Justice Ginsburg would be dead in nine months, following her first pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

“There was a senator, I think it was after my pancreatic cancer, who announced with great glee that I was going to be dead within six months,” Ginsburg said. “That senator, whose name I have forgotten, is now himself dead, and I,” she added with a smile, “am very much alive.”

Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg is so far left, that in 2012, she  told an Egyptian TV station that she would not recommend using the U.S. Constitution as a model for writing a modern-day constitution

In 2005, “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the Supreme Court embraced the practice of consulting foreign legal decisions…rejecting the argument from conservatives that United States law should not take international thinking into account.”

The court says that with intravenous antibiotics and fluids, her symptoms have abated and she expects to be released from the hospital as early as Sunday morning.
