William Hubbs Rehnquist (October 1, 1924 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – September 3, 2005 in Arlington, Virginia) was an American lawyer, jurist, and a political figure. He was an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States and later as the Chief Justice of the United States. Considered a conservative, Rehnquist favored a federalism under which the states meaningfully exercised governmental power. Under this view of federalism, the Supreme Court of the United States, for the first time since the 1930s, struck down an Act of Congress as exceeding federal power under the Commerce Clause.
