Chief Justice of the United States since 2005, John Glover Roberts Jr. (born January 27, 1955) is an American attorney and jurist. Roberts has written majority opinion in several landmark cases, including Riley v. California and National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius. His legal thinking is classified as conservative, but above all he is an institutionalist.

After Anthony Kennedy’s retirement in 2018, he was seen as the main casting vote on the Supreme Court due to his tendency to work with the liberal group. However, following the replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Amy Coney Barrett in 2020, Roberts lost his status as the court voter and was replaced by Brett Kavanaugh.

She worked as a recruiter at Major Lindsay and Africa, a leading legal recruitment firm in London. She is involved with her alma mater, College of the Holy Cross, as a member of the Board of Trustees.

Her biography reads in part:

“Prior to joining MLA, Jane was an Executive Partner for Talent Development at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. Prior to taking on this role, she was a partner in the company’s Global Technology Group, where she focused on IT sourcing and procurement of satellite systems.”

At Shaw Pittman and Dorsey & Whitney, Jane represented clients in litigation before a range of courts and administrative agencies.

“Ms. Roberts was a litigator in Australian courts in 1992, when she worked for the leading Australian law firm Arthur Robinson & Hedderwicks.”

In addition, Jane served as a clerk for the Honorable James M. Sprouse on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals during 1984–1985.

“Before entering the legal profession, she taught high school and college math and was a systems engineer at Bell Laboratories.”

According to Irish America, they both come from Irish families and together own a cottage in Knocklong, County Limerick, close to where her mother grew up in Charleville, on the Limerick/Cork border. The Irish heritage we come from is something we hold dear. My grandfather and I loved Irish culture, so we danced to Irish music at gatherings we hosted at my house.

“Everyone had to have a party piece. I usually danced. I had one song, the ‘Gypsy Rover’ and I still get asked to sing that song,’

she told Irish America.

When were they married?

In 1996, John Roberts tied the knot with Jane. Although they had a great time together at the beach house, she eventually left to travel Australia for a year. When they finally reconnected, she bet he wouldn’t have remembered her outfit from their first meeting. He did, and his clothes were also etched in her memory.

“We were very attracted to each other. We had so much in common.”

She told the website.
