Hail and farewell

Chief Justice William Rehnquist has died at his home in Arlington, his three children by his side.

Rehnquist, 80, had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer last fall, and had been widely expected to step down from the Supreme Court, a move he steadfastly refused to make.

The fall session of the Court begins on 3 October.
