Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist died Saturday evening at his home in suburban Virginia, said Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg.
A statement from the spokeswoman said he was surrounded by his three children when he died in Arlington.
RIP, Mr. Chief Justice.
Well, now Bush has two more picks to make to the USSC: Someone to replace Rehnquist as the CJ, and someone else to fill the vacancy his death has created on the USSC. (Unless, of course, Bush taps the same person to fill both roles, which I find unlikely.)
We’re in for a media-heavy September, folks. Especially if/when another hurricane forms and heads towards the US… :-/
