Now that the Supreme Court has ended its 2009 Term, we can begin to assess the impact of its decisions on how companies operate. From Bilski to Weyhrauch, the Court's decisions touched on a variety of critical business issues, including arbitration, patents, employment, ERISA, "honest services" fraud, and securities.
