(Newser) – Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from a Washington hospital today after spending the night as a precaution. The 76-year-old Supreme Court justice planned to be back at work later today. Ginsburg, who underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer in February, "developed lightheadedness and fatigue" in her office yesterday after receiving treatment for anemia, said a court statement.
