The Roberts Court Could Be Pro-Business
“On Oct. 3, as Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. presided over his first day at the Supreme Court, President George W. Bush was in the West Wing introducing the woman who might soon take her own seat on the court — White House Counsel Harriet Miers.
“One segment of American society is cheering: Big Business. The addition of Roberts, who spent years as a corporate litigator, was heartening to them. The prospect of Miers, who has defended the likes of Microsoft Corp. and Walt Disney Co. and has been a leading advocate for tort reform, has many executives downright giddy.”
