Rumors of Rehnquist's Retirement Are Greatly Exaggerated

How Appealing reports that William Rehnquist issued a public statement today that he is not about to retire, rumors to the contrary.

"I want to put to rest the speculation and unfounded rumors of my imminent retirement," Rehnquist, 80, said in a statement first disclosed by The Associated Press and later confirmed by the court. "I will continue to perform my duties as chief justice as long as my health permits."
