Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was discharged Wednesday from a Baltimore hospital, one day after being admitted for a "possible infection," the Supreme Court of the United States said.

"Justice Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital. She is home and doing well," said a SCOTUS spokesperson.

Ginsburg was admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital early Tuesday morning after being evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington D.C., for “fever and chills,” the court said in a release Tuesday night.

“She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August,” the release said. “The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay at the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.”
