In recent years, the Supreme Court has decided numerous highly controversial cases, often by 5-4 margins, which have served to roll back the clock on decades of progressive jurisprudence. Many of these cases pit individual rights against corporate interests. Under the leadership of Chief Justice John Roberts, the Court has consistently favored those powerful corporate interests over average citizens, and has worked to bend the law to favor corporations.
That’s why AFJ is evaluating all cases before the Court to identify the ones that will have important implications for consumers, employees, the environment, and the vitality of our country’s democracy. AFJ tracks these “Corporate Court” cases, as well as significant cases that implicate core constitutional values, paying close attention at the petition for certiorari stage, oral argument, and when a decision is issued. On cases of particular import, we issue in-depth reports, blog posts, press releases, and other resources.
