8. Justices don't recuse from cases just because they involve the president who appointed them

Rehnquist recused, not because he was appointed by Nixon, but because he had served in the Justice Department under Nixon.

Three other justice whom Nixon also appointed didn't recuse and ruled in - Chief Justice Burger and Justices Blackmun and Powell - and ruled against him.
