A soon-to-be-published memoir by a friend of the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist offers a revealing personal glimpse of the justice’s later years, including his handling of the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton in 1999, the Bush v. Gore case of 2000 and Rehnquist’s own unsuccessful battle with cancer in 2004 and 2005.

The author is former newspaper publisher Herman Obermayer, who lived with his wife near Rehnquist in Arlington, Va., and either played tennis, dined or watched a movie with Rehnquist nearly every weekend in the years after Rehnquist’s wife died in 1991.
