The Supreme Court’s docket for 2011-12 covers cases that could have profound effects on millions of Americans. 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.
