Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was released from the hospital on Friday morning after he was admitted one week ago for "flu-like symptoms."
Last Friday, Thomas was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC on Friday and was later diagnosed with an infection.
The Supreme Court said on Sunday that Thomas "underwent tests, was diagnosed with an infection, and is being treated with intravenous antibiotics."
The Supreme Court originally stated that they expected the justice to be released by Tuesday, yet the court remained silent about his condition as the day passed.
On Wednesday, Justice Stephen Breyer was confronted by a reporter outside Cafe Milano in Washington, DC, being asked about his colleague’s condition.
"I think he's fine," he responded.
While Thomas was absent from the court room this week, he participated "in the consideration and discussion of any cases for which he is not present on the basis of briefs, transcripts, and audio of the oral arguments," the Supreme Court states.
No additional details on Thomas' release from the hospital are currently available.
