This is but one of many exhibits of evidence.

Supreme Court Disallows FISA Challenges

Obligatory (though not personally a fan).

I can't tell which judges were for and which against. It was close.

Along ideological (aka "party") lines. So the conservative judges were in the 5, the liberal judges the 4. I haven't seen anything mentioned about any "surprise" votes. Conservative, Swing, Liberal:

Alito
Roberts
Scalia
Thomas

Kennedy

Breyer
Ginsberg
Kagan
Sotamayor
