Chief Justice Roberts May Have Epilepsy

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts, 52, suffered an unexplained seizure and fell on a dock yesterday. It was his second seizure, the first one occurring in 1993. Some experts believe he may have epilepsy.

Dr. Steven Pacia, chief of neurology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, said that, given this was Roberts' second seizure, it's "likely" that he has epilepsy. "It's the most likely thing based on what we know from what's been released," he said.

While many experts agree and say that the "definition of epilepsy is two unprovoked seizures," others believe it's too soon to tell whether Roberts has the neurological disorder and that other conditions may be to blame.
