John Roberts, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, is seriously considering stepping down from the nation’s highest court for personal reasons, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Clearly big news (or rumors). This would give President Obama the ability to establish a firm liberal legacy on the Court.
Perhaps this rumor/news is related to the Chief Justice's health. As you may recall, Chief Justice Roberts suffered from a seizure while on the Court. He suffered from a similar seizure in 1993 as well.
UPDATE: Radar Online has retracted their statement and now notes that the Chief Justice will NOT be resigning. See what happens when you read the tabloids?
