Prayers For Our Chief Justice

Chief Justice Roberts To Spend Night At Hospital

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., a seasonal resident of Hupper Island, located off Port Clyde, will be staying overnight at Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport following a seizure.

St. George Ambulance responded to a call at about 2 p.m. Monday of a man who had fallen 5 to 10 feet and landed on a dock, hitting the back of his head. The patient was ashen and was foaming at the mouth. National news report quotes a Supreme Court spokeswoman as saying that Roberts was conscious the entire time of the incident. That spokeswoman has not returned a telephone call to the newspaper.

PBMC issued a statement at about 7 p.m., saying that Roberts was being kept overnight as a precaution and was recovered. He suffered some minor scrapes from the fall, the hospital stated. A comprehensive neurological examination was administered to the chief justice and the seizure was determined to be a benign one, the hospital stated. The chief justice suffered a similar seizure in 1993.

Chief Justice Roberts is one of the most qualfied Supreme Court justices we've ever had.

It appears they will put him on seizure medication and he should be fine.

I pray for his speedy recovery and a long, long career on the bench.

The stupid d'RATS are already saying he 'lied' about this issue during his confirmation hearing... Shoot, at that point, it was a one-time occurance, hardly something that was indicative of anything that could hamper his ability to be on the SCOTUS. It still isn't after two of them...
