Judge Sotomayor's top 50 opinions
Here are Judge Sotomayor's 50 most important opinions, as judged by the PreCYdent algorithm. (See also pdf version below. Our site is running slow these days because we need another server, so if you just want the list, the pdf is probably quicker.) Our algorithm judges importance in something like the way that Google judges the importance of webpages. For you geeks out there, that means we use a modified Kleinberg algorithm with some special sauces. So it's not just a matter of how often a case is cited, but how important are the cases that do the citing, among many other factors.
Given her many opinions, a service such as this is much appreciated.
Clearly, the candidate has been productive in her time on the bench.
There is a clear difference in the length and quality of a Supreme Court decision or dissent compared to the average Circuit opinion I have seen lately.
The more material to examine in an efficient amount of time the better.
So far, it is only Ricci that annoys for being too short and unsatisfying for lawyer and non-lawyer alike.

That's "opinions" in the legal sense, rather than the "you're intrinsically inferior, white man" sense?
