SUPREME DEBATE
DailyFeed
In the ongoing kerfuffle between business and government, the wrath of the former is typically reserved for two branches of the latter: the executive, and the legislative.

But maybe not for long. Supreme Court -- come on down! You’re the next contestant on “BLAME. THAT. BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT!!”

Bloomberg recently reported on two different studies that analyzed how the Supreme Court treats businesses. The first study, conducted by Justice Stephen Breyer, concluded that business groups aren't doing any better today than they had been historically. The second study, conducted by Constitutionality Accountability Center, disagreed. From 1981 to 1986, the CAC said the US Chamber of Commerce “won less than half its cases at the Supreme Court, compared with about two-thirds over the past five years.”

That’s when the US Chamber of Commerce’s ears perked up, and they added their two cents, alleging that the CAC’s study was based on a “perplexingly small sample size,” and looked “like a theory in search of evidence.”

The CAC released a similar study earlier this year that showed -- what a shocker -- that business cases typically divided justices across their ideological orientations, with Justices Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito siding with companies.
