Supreme Court Justice Hospitalized

U.S. Supreme Court

7-13-05 - A Supreme Court spokeswoman says Chief Justice William Rehnquist has been hospitalized for a fever. Rehnquist has been undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer since last fall.

Both before and after the retirement announcement from Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, there has been speculation that a similar announcement would come from Rehnquist.

The spokeswoman says Rehnquist was taken to a hospital last night and "was admitted for observation and tests."
