Chief Justice Roberts speaks at LaPorte alma mater

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is returning to the Roman Catholic boarding school in northern Indiana he graduated from 40 years ago to give the commencement speech.

Roberts is scheduled to speak Friday at La Lumiere School near LaPorte, about 25 miles west of South Bend.

Roberts graduated at the top of his class in 1973. He was co-captain of the football team, co-editor of the newspaper and served on the executive committee of the student council.

Roberts moved to Long Beach, Ind., from Buffalo, N.Y., in the 1960s, when his father became manager at the Burns Harbor Bethlehem Steel plant.

Roberts was nominated to replace Chief Justice William Rehnquist by President George W. Bush in 2005.
