Ginsburg out of the hospital and 'cracking jokes'

(SOUNDBITE) (English) WRITER, AND NEPHEW OF RGB, DANIEL STIEPLEMAN SAYING: "You're very nice to ask, yeah, she's doing great." Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is out of the hospital and according to her nephew is recovering well, after she fractured three ribs in a fall.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) WRITER, AND NEPHEW OF RGB, DANIEL STIEPLEMAN SAYING: "The last I heard she was up and working of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes.

I can't promise they were good jokes but they were jokes." Daniel Stiepleman, who wrote the script for "On the Basis of Sex," -- a feature film on his aunt's life as a young lawyer--spoke to Reuters at the premiere Thursday.

The 85-year-old justice was hospitalized the night before Hollywood got its first look at the new movie.

And to the audience's surprise, the real-life Ginsburg makes a brief appearance in the film… drawing lots of applause at the premiere.

Ginsburg - also called "Notorious RBG" by loyal fans - has served on the court since 1993 and is currently one of the court's four liberals.

The court's 5-4 conservative majority was restored last month after the Senate confirmed Brett Kavanaugh following a contentious nomination process.
