FILE - This Jan. 28, 2014 file photo shows Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts in the House chamber on Capitol Hill waiting for the President's State of the Union address to begin. Roberts is beginning his 10th year at the head of the Supreme Court, and the fifth with the same lineup of justices. He has been part of a five-justice conservative majority that has rolled back campaign finance limits, upheld abortion restrictions and been generally skeptical of the consideration of race in public life. But his court has taken a different path in cases involving gay and lesbian Americans, despite the chief justice's opposition most of the time. (AP Photo/Larry Downing, Pool)
