Justice Alito's First(?) Vote

Is for a stay in a death case (order here).  I'm not sure it is really his first vote, however, because of this order list.  A bunch of them say "Justice Alito took no part" etc., but the first one (Crosby v. Rutherford) does not.  It looks like he participated in that one. (John Marshall Crimprof Timothy O'Neill emails that Justice Alito was not a Justice when Crosby was decided, so there was no need to note his non-participation.) [Jack Chin]
