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

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.

Join Mayer Brown partners Timothy Bishop, former clerk to Justice Brennan, Dan Himmelfarb, former Assistant to the Solicitor General and clerk to Justice Thomas, and Andrew Pincus, former Assistant to the Solicitor General and General Counsel of the US Department of Commerce, for a recap of the Term and a preview of the key cases that the Court will be hearing in OT2010. Cases we will discuss include:

  • Bilski v. Kappos
  • Morrison v. National Australia Bank Ltd.
  • Rent-A-Center West, Inc. v. Jackson
  • Jones v. Harris Associates L.P.
  • Hertz Corp. v. Friend
  • Citizens United v. Federal Election Comm'n
