    Mr. Spilman.  I was looking at judge Ryan’s stat and saw that it said 33 of 32, (89%).  It does not surprise me to see that Judge Ryan sides often with the majority, in this case even more than the majority.

  3. Zachary D Spilman says:

    That’s obviously a typo. 33 out of 37 cases. Corrected.

    I also corrected the percentage for Judge Ohlson: He joined the majority in 92% of the cases in which he participated.
