Yesterday Judge Tyson dissented in four cases, stretching his lead as the top dissenting judge this year on the COA.

In the month of June, there were a total of 13 dissenting opinions in the COA. The COA issued 76 published opinions in June. So dissents were filed in 17% of the published cases.

Of course, under NC law, a dissent gives the losing party an automatic right of appeal to the SCT, which means, theoretically, the greater the number of dissents, the more work for the SCT.
