One famous example (perhaps justifying this reply to the full list) is
Justice Ginsburg's concurrence in the denial of cert. in the Minnesota case
involving religion-based peremptory jury challenges. There was a somewhat
extensive dissent from the denial by Thomas, as I recall, arguing that the
Court's race/gender-based peremptory cases required extension to religion.
I can't recall the case name offhand, but I believe it was in 1994. It was
somewhat unusual to have the merits discussed, both pro and con, in opinions
concurring and dissenting from cert denial (a rather clear signal, I would
think, that the case was cert-worthy and should have been resolved on the
Thomas Jefferson School of Law
