The Disagreement Rates measure the percentage of published opinions in which two justices cast opposing votes, one voting with the majority, the other voting with the dissent. The rate for each year covers the period of April 1 of the previous year through March 31 of the year indicated. A separate table is presented for each justice, indicating his or her disagreement rates with each of the other justices.
