It’s called the “Roberts Court” so of course U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts garners a lot of attention. But his profile is rising even more with the pending Affordable Care Act and marriage equality decisions.
The Washington Post reports Roberts is not only the court’s most visible justice but also its most scrutinized. He is expected to play a pivotal role in both high profile cases that will affect millions of Americans. He’s already surprised some with his decisions this term, and last week’s opinion in the Williams-Yulee v. The Florida Bar case may be the most shocking and upset some conservatives.
