Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Home After Heart Procedure

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Thursday after having a heart stent implanted to clear a blocked artery, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said. The 81-year-old jurist was sent home and was expected to be at work when the court hears its next round of oral arguments on Monday, spokesman Kathy Arberg said. Ginsburg, who has had a series of health problems, was rushed to MedStar Washington Hospital Center late Tuesday after experiencing discomfort during exercise.
