Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from a hospital in Baltimore Sunday after being treated for chills and fever, Reuters reports.

Details: The 86-year-old was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Friday night before being transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital "for further evaluation and treatment of any possible infection," per a Supreme Court statement Saturday.

What they're saying: Ginsburg was expected to recover quickly. The Saturday statement noted: "With intravenous antibiotics and fluids, her symptoms have abated."

  • “She is home and doing well,” spokesperson Kathy Arberg said in a statement Sunday.

The big picture: Ginsburg, the leader of the Supreme Court's liberal wing, has been treated for cancer two times in the past year.

Protests over the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings of black people continued for a seventh day across the U.S., with President Trump threatening on Monday to deploy the military if the unrest continues.

The latest: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted early Tuesday that he'd just left the Bronx and the police commissioner was sending additional assistance to problem areas. Protesters were "overwhelmingly peaceful" Monday, he said. "But some people tonight had nothing to do with the cause + stole + damaged instead," he added.
