    Role Models for Roberts
    By Jonathan Turley, USA Today
    September 11, 2005

    With the formal end of the Rehnquist Court, John Roberts will by definition hearken a new era on the Supreme Court if confirmed as the 17th chief justice of the United States. Before there is a "Roberts Court," however, there must first be a clearly defined Chief Justice Roberts. With the start of his Senate hearings today, Roberts will begin the transformation from a circuit judge to chief justice. In doing so, he might want to consider the models left by 16 great and not-so-great predecessors.
