What Should a Judge's Reversal Rate Be?

http://www.concurringopinions.com/2009/05/">Dave Hoffman thinks "we have no idea what an appropriate reversal rate for an appellate judge ought to be." I am not sure I would go quite that far, but I certainly agree with him that "An appellate judge’s 'reversal statistic' tells you less than you think about the 'merits' of her opinions, or even how such opinions stacked up against governing Supreme Court precedent."
