SCOWstats just published its first post in a multi-part series reviewing SCOW’s 2021-2022 term. The burst of June and July opinions confirmed a trend that emerged in May. This term, SCOW released an unprecedented number of 4-3 decisions with Hagedorn casting the decisive vote in 86% of them. And in 50% of those, he swung left. Who controls SCOW? For now, it appears to be Hagedorn.
