Today, we’re turning our attention to our initial examination of Justice Liu’s voting record.
Justice Goodwin Liu took his seat on the Court on September 1, 2011. Since that time, he has voted in 292 civil cases. The distribution of his votes is similar to the Chief Justice and Justice Corrigan. From 2011 through the end of 2020, Justice Liu has voted to affirm in 97 civil cases, or 33.22% of his total, and voted to reverse in 142 cases – 48.63%. He has cast 24 split votes to affirm in part and reverse/vacate/modify in part, 3 votes each to deny and grant, 2 votes to vacate and 21 “other” – nearly all in certified question cases from the Ninth Circuit.
Join us back here tomorrow as we begin our review of Justice Kruger’s voting record.
