Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg released from Johns Hopkins Hospital on Wednesday after possible infection

Ginsburg was brought to Hopkins on Tuesday after experiencing a fever and chills and being evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., the night before.

The 87-year-old justice underwent an endoscopic procedure Tuesday in Baltimore to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August when she was treated for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas, the court said in a news release.

The court originally said that Ginsburg was expected to stay in the hospital “for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.”
