Review of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Shows 5 of the Top 10 Pro-Business Justices are Currently Sitting on the High Court – Los Angeles Employment Attorneys Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik Appears on CNN “Money for Lunch”

by Norman B. Blumenthal on June 25, 2013

Courthouse columnsAccording to a recent Minnesota Law Review article, “How Business Fares in the Supreme Court,” five of the top ten pro-business justices are currently sitting on the high court!  Justice Roberts and Alito are #1 and #2.  Justice Thomas and Kennedy are #4 and #5, and Justice Scalia is #10.

“In the eight years since Chief Justice Roberts joined the court, the great pro-business soldier for corporate America, corporations have been allowed to spend freely in elections, been shielded from class actions and human right suits, and made arbitration the favorite way to resolve many disputes,” said Norman Blumenthal, founding partner of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.  “Businesses are now free to run their operations without fear of liability for the harm they cause to consumers, employees, and people injured by their products.  Realistically, the only choice the injured has is collective access to the judicial system, which doesn’t exist, or no access at all.  This high court gives no access at all.”

Corporations control Congress.  Have a good ear of the president and control the U.S. Supreme Court.  When corporations do not fear they will receive consequences for their greed, then the corporations will deliberately misclassify employees to avoid overtime pay.  Elections matter.
