He calls an ethics professor who he knows will give him the answer he wants -- that he need not recuse himself even when clearly required to do so. See 30 Okla. City Univ. L. Rev. 513, at 524-526 and 529-532.

"That means I have to take with absolute seriousness the obligation to sit as well as the obligation not to sit," he said, echoing sentiments also expressed by the Chief Justice in his report.
Rehnquist also invoked the "duty to sit" in Laird v. Tatum. But if you read the legislative history to the 1974 amendments to section 455, you will see that Congress clearly intended to abolish the "duty to sit."
