Printed syllabus signed: "William H. Rehnquist", 20 pages, 5¾x9. Opinion delivered by Associate Justice Rehnquist, June 30, 1975, concerning three corporations that sought "a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, and declaratory relief, against...a law enforcement official, claiming that a North Hempstead, N.Y., ordinance proscribing topless dancing, which the corporations had provided as entertainment in their bars, violated their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights...." Rehnquist (1924-2005) was appointed Associate Justice by President Nixon on January 7, 1972. He joined with his colleagues in their unanimous ruling on July 24, 1974, upholding the Special Prosecutor's subpoena for President Nixon's tapes for Watergate trial; Nixon resigned 16 days later. President Reagan appointed Rehnquist Chief Justice on September 26, 1986; he served until his death in 2005. As Chief Justice, he presided at President Clinton's impeachment trial in 1999. On December 12, 2000, his court ruled 5-4 that the manual recount of presidential votes in Florida was unconstitutional, resulting in Vice President Al Gore's concession and Texas Governor George W. Bush's victory. He was contemplating retirement due to ill health when he unexpectedly died in 2005. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
