Chief Justice of the United States

Presiding judge of the United States Supreme CourtThe chief justice of the United States[1][2] is the chief judge of the Supreme Court of the United States and the highest-ranking officer of the U.S. federal judiciary. Five of the 17 chief justices—John Rutledge, Edward Douglass White, Charles Evans Hughes, Harlan Fiske Stone, and William Rehnquist—served as associate justice prior to becoming chief justice. Origin, title, and appointment [ edit ]The United States Constitution does not explicitly establish an office of chief justice but presupposes its existence with a single reference in Article I, Section 3, Clause 6: \"When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside.\" The Judiciary Act of 1789 created the distinctive titles of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The chief justice ordinarily administers the oath of office to newly appointed and confirmed associate justices, whereas the seniormost associate justice will normally swear in a new chief justice.
