Supreme Court decisions are not my field of expertise, but Patterico has this field covered, so I would believe him over the LA Times Editorial Page... any day. See below:
L.A. Times Needs a New Fact-Checker for Those Editorials

Today's L.A. Times editorial on Justice O'Connor opens with this statement:
One fact sums up Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's pivotal role on the Supreme Court and the enormity of her resignation - she alone was in the majority of every one of the court's 13 5-4 decisions this last term.
Wow. That's really impressive. Except for one small problem ... there were 24 5-4 decisions this Term, not 13 - and Justice O'Connor was in the minority in quite a few of those cases.
