Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after suffering from inflammation of her gallbladder, the Supreme Court said in a statement on Tuesday night.

Ginsburg, 87, is the oldest member of the Supreme Court and the longest-serving Democratic appointee.

"Ginsburg underwent non-surgical treatment for acute cholecystitis, a benign gallbladder condition, this afternoon at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland," the court's statement said.
