Prayers for Chief Justice Roberts

Chief Justice John Roberts is reported to have fallen 5 to 10 feet on a dock near his vacation home in Maine.

Jim Angle reported on Fox News Channel's Special Report With Brit Hume that the Chief Justice suffered a grand mal seizure, though it was unclear at the time of reporting whether the seizure preceded or followed the fall.

The Chief Justice suffered a previous seizure in 1993.

Update: An update directly from the Supreme Court spokeswoman, via SCOTUSblog.

She says the Chief Justice suffered a "benign idiopathic seizure" from which he is described as "recovered." A "thorough neurological evaluation...revealed no cause for concern."

Good news.
