LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is “up and working” and making jokes after being hospitalized with rib fractures, her nephew said on Thursday at the premiere of a new movie about her early career.
Daniel Stiepleman, who wrote the script for the film “On the Basis of Sex” about his aunt’s early career with input from the justice herself, told Reuters Ginsburg was “doing great.”
“The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes,” he said. “I can’t promise they were good jokes but they were jokes.”
