I compiled the SG’s win-loss record during OT08 in four different scenarios: When it took part in a case as Petitioner, when it took part as Respondent, when it joined and argued a case in support of the petitioner, and when it joined and argued a case in support of the respondent. You can find a PDF of the results here.

The SG has historically had an incredible high success rate when asking the Court to review a lower Court’s decision (around 75%, according to Richard Parcelle in Between and Politics). Even when acting as the respondent in a case, the SG is said to have a success rate around 50%, despite the fact that the Court traditionally reverses around 75% of cases.
