Here’s how it works. The Justice “on call” knows how many votes there are for the stay and enters it even if he/she does not plan to vote for it. She has low seniority, hence her having New Years Eve as her day and hence she being the one to grant the stay. It’s not that big a deal that she did it although I hope she has seen the light.

Sorry but that’s not how it works.
Each justice is assigned over a specific Circuit court.
In this case she happens to be over the 10th Circuit.
She’s not on call.
Do a google search of which justices have certain circuits.
I believe Kennedy is over the 9th, or at least he used to be for many years.

That’s incorrect. Each justice has jurisdiction over a circuit court of appeals. This came from Sotomayor’s circuit.
