Happy Birthday Sandra Day O’Connor!

Retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor celebrates her 85th birthday today.  She’s most notably known for being the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.  But we’ve learned1 of another accomplishment: she is the first2 Justice to dated another Justice.  While in law school she and William Rehnquist had a short relationship.
