Recent and Upcoming Business Decisions

During the 2007 US Supreme Court Term, the business community was captivated as the Court heard case after case with far-reaching business implications. From the appeal described by the Wall Street Journal as "the biggest securities-litigation court clash in a generation," Stoneridge Inv. v. Scientific Atlanta, to the pending case that could rewrite the book on punitive damage awards, Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker, we saw the Court continuing its trend of taking on important business cases.
As the 2007 Term draws to a close in June, Mayer Brown and ALM Events invite you to join us for a peer-to-peer discussion on recent decisions and what we can anticipate in the 2008 Term. Topics to be discussed include:
- The increase in the number of federal preemption cases and their impact on business
- The effect Exxon might have on other punitive damages cases
- Stoneridge, Bridge, and the Court's reaction to plaintiffs' attempts to expand the available theories of liability
- The Court's reaction to the increased use of arbitration to settle business disputes
- Employment and ERISA litigation pending before the Court
