5-4 Supreme Court Rulings Fade

The New York Times’ Linda Greenhouse recently worte a piece here about the absence of 5-to-4 decisions this term. A year ago at this time, the Supreme Court decided thirteen cases by a vote of 5-to-4, but so far this year, of the 35 cases decided with full opinions, only one yielded a 5-4 split. Greenhouse discusses some of the cases decided this term and some potential reasons for the lack of 5-to-4 decisions. –Counseller/md
