Frequency in the Majority
(Through June 8, 2009) The charts below measure how frequently each Justice has voted with the majority in cases decided on the merits thus far. It does not include dismissed cases where the vote was not disclosed (al-Marri, Bell v. Kelly and Phillip Morris), but does include the four per curiam summary reversals (Moore, Spears, Nelson, and CSX Transportation). The first chart examines the results for all cases, the second only for divided cases with at least one dissenting vote. In each, we list the number of times each Justice has voted with the majority, the number of times each Justice has voted overall, the frequency with which each Justice has voted with the majority in OT08 thus far, and the corresponding figure for the full OT07 term.
