WASHINGTON, July 30 — Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. was hospitalized today after suffering a seizure at his summer home in Maine, the Supreme Court reported.

The episode, described as a “benign idiopathic seizure,” was similar to one he suffered 14 years ago, according to a statement by the court.

He had no lasting effects from the earlier incident and was “fully recovered” from the seizure he experienced about 2 p.m. today, the court said, adding that the chief justice had undergone “a thorough neurological evaluation, which revealed no cause for concern.”

Chief Justice Roberts was due to remain overnight “as a precaution” at Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport.

The seizure caused a fall, in which he “experienced minor scrapes,” the court said. (More)
