Since joining the Court, Justice Cuellar has participated in twenty criminal constitutional law cases. He has voted for defendants in 11 of those cases, and against them nine times.
Only five of those cases were won by the defendant at the Court of Appeal. Justice Cuellar voted to affirm three of those defense wins and to reverse twice.
Fifteen cases were lost by the defendant below. Justice Cuellar has voted to reverse, in whole or in part, in eight of those cases and has supported affirmance seven times.
Join us back here next Thursday as we conclude our review of the Justices’ voting records in criminal constitutional law cases.
