Chief Justice Roberts in hospital after seizure

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. of the U.S. Supreme Court was hospitalized on Monday after suffering a seizure at his vacation home in Maine.

Roberts "fully recovered" from the seizure, the high court said. He spent the night in the hospital for observation. He previously suffered a seizure in 1993, according to news reports.

Roberts joined the court in September 2005. He has presided over what some have called a shift to the right on issues like abortion and affirmative action. The court has decided one major Indian law case under Roberts, ruling against a Kansas tribe in a state taxation dispute.
