Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been released from Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and is now "doing well" at her home, a Supreme Court spokesperson said Sunday. 

Ginsburg checked into the hospital Friday night due to "chills and fever," the nation's highest court said in a statement. 

She had an initial evaluation at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., but was then sent to Johns Hopkins Hospital so that she could be treated and monitored further. The Supreme Court said that her symptoms have "abated" after receiving intravenous antibiotics and fluids.

Ginsburg, who is 86 years old, has seen multiple health scares in the past year. Earlier this month she missed a day of oral arguments due to a stomach bug. 

In August, Ginsburg had three weeks of radiation therapy in order to treat a tumor on her pancreas. 

In November 2018, Ginsburg had a fall in her Supreme Court office, which caused her to fracture three ribs. While she was getting treatment, a CT scan also showed that she had cancer in her left lung. Ginsburg then had surgery, which caused her to miss oral arguments on Jan. 7, the first time in 25 years. Ginsburg then returned to the court on Feb. 15.

Ginsburg was previously treated for pancreatic cancer in 2009 and for colon cancer in 1999. 

Ginsburg, a liberal icon, said in September that she has no plans to retire. She has shot back at critics who have said that she should have retired during the Obama administration when she could have been replaced by a younger liberal justice. 

"When that suggestion is made, I ask the question: 'Who do you think the president could nominate that could get through the Republican Senate, who you would prefer on the court than me?'" Ginsburg said.

Ginsburg may have a valid point. In March 2016, Obama nominated moderate judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court but the nomination was blocked by the Republican-controlled Senate.
