3. Thomas, for all the hype given him by the right
Has been one of the laziest members of the court. I don't think he writes too many opinions, and his not asking questions is commonly known. I personally think he just tries to figure out what's the conservative way of voting (or asks himself, "How would Scalia vote?") and takes naps during the actual case.
