In 1969, President Richard Nixon nominated Burger to succeed Chief Justice Earl Warren. Initially he was not a strong intellectual force on the court, but sought to improve the administration of the federal judiciary. In 1974, Burger wrote for a unanimous court in United States v. Nixon, which rejected Nixon's invocation of executive privilege in the wake of the Watergate scandal. The ruling played a major role in Nixon's resignation. Burger joined the majority in Roe v. Wade in holding that the right to privacy prohibited states from banning abortions. He later abandoned Roe v. Wade in Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. His majority opinion in INS v. Chadha struck down the legislative veto.The Burger Court delivered numerous conservative decisions, it also delivered some liberal decisions regarding abortion, capital punishment, religious establishment, and school desegregation.
