Judge Roberts -- A Big Impact Possible in his First Week on the Job

Judge John Roberts could make a big difference on hot-button issues within months of a confirmation to the court. The Supreme Court has an agenda that includes cases on abortion, assisted suicide, terrorism, and the death penalty all on the calendar for next year.

Those are all issues that have been decided by a split court -- often with retiring Judge Sandra Day O'Connor being the swing vote.

If confiremed, Justice Roberts would hear a "right to die" case his very first week on the high court. (LAT)
