Supreme Court Statistics for This Term
Scotusblog.com is really the best blog I know of. Its latest "statpack" is out giving us some great insight into the dealings of the court. Of the 64 cases decided so far, 12 have been affirmed, 51 reversed, and 1 affirmed "in part." Of the 11 9th Circuit cases, 10 reversals and 1 'affirmed in part. Kind of makes you a little paranoid. These stats can be accessed here. There have been 16 5-4 cases or 25% of the total. Anthony Kennedy was in the majority in 61 of the 64 cases decided so far. Who agreed with who can be accessed here and here. Roberts and Alito agreed with each other 92% of the time.
