In brief comments at the opening of the Supreme Court’s session Monday, Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. expressed “profound sympathy” to retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor for the death last week of her husband John O’Connor III. O’Connor died Nov. 11 at the age of 79 of complications resulting from Alzheimer’s disease.

Roberts said he was speaking on behalf of the Court and retired Justice David Souter, and that the official record of the Court would note that its upcoming recess would be in honor of O’Connor. After Monday, the Court is in recess until Nov. 30.
