Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery for Coronary Blockage

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery for Coronary Blockage

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized after doctors discovered a blockage in her left coronary artery.

Ginsburg "experienced discomfort during routine exercise" on Tuesday evening, according to a statement from the Court.

She underwent coronary catheterization procedure at MedStar Washington Center this morning.

Despite being diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009, Ginsburg, appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, has never missed a day of oral arguments due to medical treatment.

The court is set to hear arguments on Monday.


Get well, Justice Ginsburg.

A Takata Airbag Plant In Mexico Blew Up In 2006

A Takata Airbag Plant In Mexico Blew Up In 2006

Editorial note: This story was originally reported by Joanna Zuckerman Bernstein and Ben Klayman of Reuters. Business Insider has added additional contextual detail about the Takata recall.

The dusty, industrial town of Ciudad Frontera, Mexico, has moved from the far reaches of the global auto supply chain to the front lines of an investigation into why air bags from Takata Corp are blowing up with lethal force in accidents.

The Takata plant there has been confirmed as the source of defective air bags made in 2001 and 2002 and again around 2012, according to recall records, automakers and regulators. In 2006, the factory blew up, driving home for workers and residents the volatility and risk of the explosive compound at the core of Takata’s air bags.

This is related to the recall. Something rotten in Maquiladora's even then.
