SCOTUS stats from SCOTUSblog

As detailed here, SCOTUSblog has an exciting new feature: "each week from now until the end of the Term, we are going to make available a comprehensive 'Stat Pack' with information about cases yet to be decided this Term along with the Court's docket for OT07."  The first "Stat Pack" can be accessed here, and it lists Claiborne and Rita among the highest priority cases outstanding.

If SCOTUSblog would just add a few more fun stats (e.g., words per opinion, law review cites per opinion author), it might become even easier to start the SCOTUS fantasy league I have long dreamed about.

UPDATE:  Speaking of stats, this newspaper article dissect SCOTUS oral argument transcripts and reports total words spoken this Term at oral argument.  Not surprisingly, Justices Breyer and Scalia are in lead.
