14 New Grants, Four More Recusals

The Supreme Court added fourteen more cases to the docket for October Term 2010 yesterday.  Lyle Denniston rounds up the cases here. (More here.)  As BLT notes, Justice Elena Kagan has recused herself from four of these cases.  For those keeping track, this brings her total number of recusals up to twenty-five.  This represents a significant portion of the Court’s docket for the term — almost half — but was to be expected given her service as Solicitor General.
