Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was discharged from Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday following nonsurgical treatment for a gallbladder condition, according to a statement.

The state of play: Ginsberg, 87, underwent treatment for a benign condition called acute cholecystitis. She is not expected to miss any oral arguments, which are currently being conducted via teleconference.

  • She was "suffering from a gallstone that has migrated to her cystic duct, blocking it and causing an infection," a Tuesday statement noted.

Between the lines: Ginsberg's health has fluctuated in recent years amid battles with cancer.

  • She is the longest-serving member of the court's liberal wing and has been treated for cancer twice in just over a year, including a treatment that forced her to miss oral arguments for the first time in her career.

What to watch: Ginsberg will continue to visit the hospital over the next few weeks for outpatient treatment.
