Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been released from a Washington hospital after spending the night there as a precaution. The court said in a statement Friday morning that the 76-year-old justice plans to be back at work later Friday.

Ginsburg fell ill in her office Thursday afternoon after receiving treatment for anemia. Although she was found to be stable after an examination, the court said she was taken to the Washington Hospital Center as a precautionary measure. Ginsburg underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer in February.
