The Supreme Court’s 91-page orders list from Monday disposed of more than 2,000 cases that accumulated over the summer. The list noted several justices recusing in some of the cases. New Justice Sonia Sotomayor recused most often, bowing out of 76 cases on the list.

That’s to be expected, because she sat on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals before becoming a justice this summer. It is customary for justices to recuse in cases in which they participated at an earlier stage; most if not all of Sotomayor’s recusals on Monday were in cases from that circuit.
