U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Considering Stepping Down | RadarOnline.com

According to Radar Online, the next Supreme Court justice to step down won’t be John Paul Stevens or Ruth Bader Ginsburg after all.  Claiming an exclusive scoop from unnamed sources, they say that the next resignation will be that of conservative Chief Justice John Roberts.

The question is whether Radar’s sourcing will hold up.  Conservatives will be praying that it won’t.   For Roberts to step down now, one would have to assume a very serious illness or family matter arose that absolutely would keep him from fulfilling his duties.  We’ll see shortly.

UPDATE: RadarOnline knows how to really run with a story, even if that direction is backwards:

RadarOnline.com has obtained new information that Justice Roberts will NOT resign. The justice will be staying on the bench.
