Justice Clarence Thomas has been hospitalized after experiencing flu-like symptoms, the Supreme Court announced in a statement.

On Friday evening, Thomas, 73, was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., and has since been diagnosed with an infection, Supreme Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe said.


According to McCabe, Thomas’s symptoms are abating and he is resting comfortably.

Thomas is expected to be released from the hospital in a day or two, and will “participate in the consideration and discussion of any cases for which he is not present on the basis of the briefs, transcripts, and audio of the oral arguments.”

Thomas has been on the court since 1991, and will hopefully remain there forever.
