Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was injured in a bicycle crash on Friday and the injury required shoulder surgery
"Associate Justice Stephen Breyer underwent reverse shoulder replacement surgery for a proximal humerus fracture this morning at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital," court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said. "The fracture was sustained in his right shoulder in a fall from his bicycle on Friday afternoon, April 26, near the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital following his injury."
The surgery was successful and Breyer is resting comfortably, the spokesperson said. He is expected to be released from the hospital early in the week.
I can't believe I'm going to write this, but maybe Justice Breyer needs to take up swimming insted of biking. From a previous post less than 2 years ago
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer of the Bicycle theory, broke his collarbone in a cycling accident last weekend in Massachusetts. That's not his first crash either. He must run red lights like crazy. "In 1993, Breyer suffered more serious injuries, a punctured lung and broken ribs, when he was hit by a car while riding his bike across Harvard Square." And more here "Breyer stays limber by bicycling around Cambridge and Georgetown, where he also has a home. (In 1993, when Breyer was a federal appeals-court judge in Boston, he had what is certainly the most famous bicycle accident in Supreme Court history. A few days before an interview with President Clinton for the vacancy on the Court created by Byron White’s resignation, Breyer crashed while trying to avoid a pedestrian near his home in Cambridge, breaking a rib and puncturing a lung. He was in pain during the meeting with the President, and it didn’t go well. Breyer was appointed the following year, after Harry Blackmun retired.)" Mrs. Washcycle informs me that Warren Burger had a nasty bike crash in the 1970's that kept him off the bench for some time.
I don't have any details on the crash - beyond what's in the statemtent - and neither does the MSM. Twitter has failed me.
