Alito: Big business’s ‘No. 1 ally.’


As the Supreme Court’s term comes to a close this week, Justice Samuel Alito “has emerged as the justice friendliest to the interests of corporations. He sided with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s largest business lobby, in 13 of 14 cases this term, more often than any of his colleagues. He cast votes to limit punitive damages, ease regulation and restrict suits by investors, consumers and alleged victims of job bias.”
