Juris Doctor Roberts

Chief Justice Roberts took a tumble...but more interestingly, was this little side note from the article...I don't remember hearing about this during the confirmation process:

Sources close to the chief justice said Roberts suffered an unexplained seizure in 1993, soon after his first nomination to the D.C. circuit stalled in the Senate.

Friends blamed the seizure on stress from the confirmation fight, and Roberts limited certain activities such as driving after it happened. But after a few weeks, the problem went away, and he has since not suffered any health crises, the sources said.

UPDATE: Now they are reporting the Roberts had another seizure as in 1993...
