  • Multiple concurrences and dissents within a case are numbered, with joining votes numbered accordingly. Justices occasionally join multiple reasons in a single case; each vote is subdivided accordingly.

  • An asterisk ( * ) in the Court's opinion denotes that it was only a majority in part or a plurality.
