Justice Clarence Thomas has been hospitalized due to an infection, the Supreme Court said Sunday.

Thomas, 73, was admitted to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC, on Friday after experiencing “flu-like symptoms,” according to the court statement.

Thomas is being treated with antibiotics and his symptoms are decreasing. He is resting comfortably and expects to be released in a day or two, the court said.

The Supreme Court will meet this week to hear the arguments in four cases. Thomas plans to join the cases even if he misses the arguments, the court said.

Thomas has been on the track since 1991.
