The notable skew in the Justices' work in non-capital sentencing cases

Over at SCOTUSblog, Ben Winograd provides data on the Supreme Court's recent work in criminal cases in this interesting post, entitled "By the Numbers: Criminal Cases in OT06."  The post provides lots of mostly unsurprising data about the Justices' voting patterns.  What's perhaps most notable for sentencing fans is that the Court's thee major non-capital sentencing rulings from this past Term — Cunningham, James and Rita — are the chief outliers in the Justices' standard voting patterns in other criminal cases.
