WASHINGTON - US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the oldest member of the nine-justice court, was released from a Washington hospital on Thursday after undergoing a heart procedure, a court statement said.

Ginsburg, who is Jewish, had a stent placed in her right coronary artery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday to improve blood flow after she reported discomfort following routine exercise.

"Justice Ginsburg was released from the hospital this morning," court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said in a statement.
