Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer might want to give up riding his bicycle around his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, or at least be more careful.
Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the 72-year-old Breyer broke his right collarbone from a spill while riding his bike near his Cambridge, Mass., court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said.
Breyer missed Tuesday’s court session, but that was unrelated to his mishap, she said, adding that he did make a previously scheduled appearance in speaking to a New York City historical event Tuesday night.
In 1993, Breyer, then a judge on the U.S. court of appeals based in Boston, suffered broken ribs and other injuries when he was hit by a car while riding his bike across Harvard Square in Cambridge. The former Harvard law professor was appointed to the Supreme Court the following year.
