Supreme Court and Business: Assessing this Term’s Decisions and Looking Forward to Next Term’s Docket

Now that the US Supreme Court’s 2010 Term is coming to an end, we can begin to assess the impact of its decisions on how companies operate. From the Court’s decision in Concepcion to its anticipated ruling in Dukes, this Term has produced decisions on a variety of critical business issues.

Join Mayer Brown partners Miriam Nemetz, Andrew Pincus and Andrew Tauber—who collectively have been involved in more than 10 Supreme Court cases this Term—for a recap of the Term and a preview of the key cases that the Court will hear in the 2011 Term. The discussion will focus on the practical implications these decisions will have on businesses across industries. Topics will include:

  • Class Actions (Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes and AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, argued by speaker Andrew Pincus)
  • Securities (Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. v. Siracusano)
  • Employment (Kasten v. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corp., Thompson v. North American Stainless, LP and Staub v. Proctor Hospital)
  • Preemption (Williamson v. Mazda Motor of Am., Inc. and Bruesewitz v. Wyeth)
  • Copyright Law (Costco Wholesale Corp. v. Omega, S.A.)
