Question 3

Assume that the 8th Circuit has 10 judges, including 6
"conservatives" and 4 "liberals."  Your case will be decided by a three-judge panel, with the judges randomly drawn.  To win your civil rights case, you will have to have a panel with at least 2 liberals.  What are the odds you will get it? (Estimate)

Answer 46/240 (or about 20%)(The odds of getting 3 liberals are only 1/60)
