Supreme Court Speculations



If it's Monday, it must be time to open the floodgates of speculation over a possible resignation of Chief Justice William Rehnquist and the nomination of a successor. (As Howard Kurtz tells it, "Bill Kristol has either got the scoop of the year or he's just blathering about the Supreme Court like everyone else").

An article in the Chicago Tribune says that the White House has completed its interviews of a possible successor, focusing on Michael Luttig and John Roberts. (My coverage here; also check out the Supreme Court Short List resource page.)

Lyle Deniston describes how a Rehnquist resignation might take place from the bench today.

But Evan Schaeffer's LegalUnderground cautions that Rehnquist might not step down and that all of this speculation may be in vain.
