Yesterday, we showed that Justice Garman has voted with the minority in 6.84% of her civil cases since joining the Court, slightly below Chief Justice Burke’s percentage. Justice Theis’ percentage is almost identical: she has voted with the minority in 6.83% of her civil cases since joining the Court in 2010. There are no strong time trends in her data. She was above baseline in 2012 (7.69%) and 2014 (11.11%), but below in 2013 (6.06%). She was below in 2016 (3.57%) and 2018 (4.55%), but above it in 2017 (11.54%) and 2019 (11.76%). Justice Theis was well below her career percentage once again in 2020, voting with the minority in only 3.13% of her civil cases.
Join us back here next week as we examine the data for two more members of the Court.
