Of the cases in which it had announced decisions as of June 22 were considered liberal decisions, according to the Supreme Court Database, using a widely accepted standard developed by political scientists. “If that trend holds, the final percentage could rival the highest since the era of the notably liberal court of the 1950s and 1960s led by Chief Justice Earl Warren.” “The Supreme Court under Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has been a conservative court. But even conservative courts have liberal terms – and the current term is leaning left as it enters its final two weeks,” the New York Times reports.
