With a single vote supporting President Barack Obama’s health-care law, Republican-appointed Chief Justice John Roberts asserted his independence and defused claims that partisanship rules the Supreme Court.
Last June, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts abandoned his fellow Republican appointees to cast the vote that saved President Barack Obama’s health-care law.
When Barack Obama takes the oath of office next week, he will look into the eyes of a man who has shaped the 44th president’s legacy like no one else.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority is back to being the conservative majority.
"Like other centuries-old institutions, courts may have practices that seem archaic and inefficient-- and some are."
