Justice Leondra R. Kruger took her seat on the Court on January 5, 2015. Between that time and the end of 2020, she had voted in precisely 200 civil cases. She has voted to affirm in only 63 of those cases, or 31.5% of the total. She had voted to reverse in full 95 times, for 47.5%. There are no clear time trends in those totals.
Justice Kruger has cast split votes to affirm in part and reverse/vacate/modify in part in 21 cases. She has voted to grant 3 times and to deny and vacate 2 times (each). Finally, she has cast 14 “other” votes, nearly all of them in certified question appeals from the Ninth Circuit.
Join us back here next week as we continue our examination of the Justices’ voting records.
