SCOTUS: Rehnquist Not Going Anywhere

Posted by Tim Tagaris

The two-week head fake ended today, as Chief Justice Rehnquist announced he was staying put.

"I want to put to rest the speculation and unfounded rumors of my imminent retirement," Rehnquist, 80, said in a statement obtained by The Associated Press. "I am not about to announce my retirement. I will continue to perform my duties as chief justice as long as my health permits."
He put the statement out right before he was released from the hostpital.
