I’ve created a little chart that shows opinions released as a percentage of total opinions for a given term. For the current term, I’ve used a hypothetical total of 80, although that number is likely to rise before the end of June.

The Court has released 41% of the opinions expected for OT10, a number that is in line with recent terms. I wish there was more scandalous news to report here, but the Court seems to be on a decent pace for opinions this year.
