Justice Sotomayor Breaks Shoulder in Fall, Supreme Court Says

Sotomayor, 63, attended the court’s argument sessions on Monday and Tuesday. Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement that the justice’s doctor confirmed her shoulder was broken Monday afternoon. Sotomayor, who is right-handed, will continue her normal work schedule while wearing a sling for several weeks and undergoing physical therapy, Arberg said.

In January, paramedics treated Sotomayor for low blood sugar at her Washington home. The justice, who has type 1 diabetes, was able to go to work afterward, Arberg said at the time.
