Read the decisions

The industrious Tom Goldstein again, who is halfway through reviewing about 100 Second Circuit Court of Appeals rulings dealing with race discrimination claims on which three-judge panels Judge Sonia Sotomayor sat:
In those 50 cases, the panel accepted the claim of race discrimination only three times. In all three cases, the panel was unanimous; in all three, it included a Republican appointee.
All 50 decisions were unanimous.

How come reporters can't do this? These are public records.
