Often scholars use data to write more light-hearted pieces. For an analysis of which Supreme Court Justices invoke the most laughter at Oral Argument, see Jay Wexler, Laugh Track, 9 Green Bag 2d 59 (2005). If you're interested to see if Supreme Court Justices gamble on Presidential Elections, see Supreme Court Justices Really Do Follow the Election Returns, PS: Political Science & Politics, Vol. 37 (Oct. 2004). Any other "fun" pieces out there? Comments are open.
