Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized on Tuesday for a possible infection after the 87-year-old experienced fever and chills.

Ginsburg had a procedure done to clean a bile duct and will remain under supervision in the hospital for a few days as she receives fluids, according to a spokesperson for the court.

"The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment," the spokesperson said.

Ginsburg, often considered to be the Supreme Court's most liberal member, is also its oldest. She has experienced a range of health issues in the past few years, including undergoing cancer treatments on both her pancreas and her lungs.
