The Schedule for the Roberts Hearings

According to an A.P. news bulletin:

Chief Justice William Rehnquist’s body will lie in repose in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court on Tuesday and Wednesday and he will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery following funeral services Wednesday.

The court announced Sunday that the public will be invited to pay its respects from 10:30 a.m. EDT until 10 p.m. on Tuesday and from 10 a.m. until noon on Wednesday.

As a consequence, it seems likely that the confirmation hearings for Judge Roberts will be deferred until Thursday or Friday.
