Study of Supreme Court Justice's bitter dissents
Interesting research on "bitter" dissenting opinions for the U.S. Supreme Court. Thomas appears to be the most isolated/extreme Justice ideologically. "One way to analyze this cohesion [or lack thereof] is by looking at the opposite; that is, self-identified marginalization of the Justices. This post looks at dissents over the last two Terms that attack or harshly criticize the Court’s majority in that case."
