Chief Justice John Roberts was hospitalized last month after injuring his head in a fall

Source: Washington Post

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. suffered a fall at a Maryland country club last month that required an overnight stay in the hospital, a Supreme Court spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday night.

The 65-year-old chief justice was taken by ambulance to a hospital after the June 21 incident at the Chevy Chase Club, which was serious enough to require sutures. He stayed at the hospital overnight for observation, and was released the next morning.

Roberts has twice experienced seizures, in 1993 and in 2007, but Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said doctors ruled out that possibility in the latest incident. Doctors believe he was dehydrated, she said.

Roberts did not publicly disclose the matter, and the court’s confirmation came in response to an inquiry from The Washington Post, which received a tip.

3. Seriously, it may have made him consider his mortality. And his legacy.

He probably doesn't want to go down in history as the rubber-stamping yes-man who obediently serviced Herr Trump's every lunatic whim.

I don't want him to resign or die until after Jan 20.

Because of “jokes” like this.

26. This is in bad taste.

Do you suffer from seizures?
If not, then you have no clue what seizure patients go through and you should really delete or edit this post.

Things.

27. And you think this is what happened?

Do you have any proof that CJ Roberts was drinking heavily and that's why he suffered dehydration?

If this were Kavanaugh, then I would agree with you, but there is no evidence that CJ Roberts is a heavy drinker, in fact, with his medical history of epilepsy, he probably doesn't drink or he drinks very little.

Dehydration happens for a lot of reasons, not just from drinking alcohol.

23. Glad he's OK.

Interesting that the reporting is somewhat delayed.

If RBG so much as breaks a finger nail, they are recruiting for her replacement. And it is reported right away!
