A prior fall in 2012 left her with two broken ribs. Ginsburg, who was appointed to the court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, has also had two battles with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014.

Despite being the oldest justice on the Supreme Court, Ginsberg is known for her dedicated fitness regime, as detailed in a book by her personal trainer Bryant Johnson titled “The RBG Workout.”
