8-1 Four Times

The Supreme Court issued four opinions in argued cases today.  Interestingly, all four cases were decided 8-1 (though some featured concurrences or separate opinions).  Justice Ginsburg was the lone dissenter in two of the cases (Minneci v. Pollard and Compu-Credit Corp. v. Greenwood).  In the other two cases the lone dissenters were Justice Scalia (Gonzales v. Thaler) and Justice Thomas (Smith v. Cain).  SCOTUSBlog has more details on the opinions here.
