Supreme Court Gives Up On Even Pretending To Not Be In The Tank

June 22nd, 2012at 11:18am Posted by Eli

This is such a disgrace.

With today’s decision in Southern Union Company v. United States, the Chamber [of Commerce] has declared victory in all seven of its cases that have reached a clear outcome [this year]….

This string of seven straight victories brings the Chamber’s overall win/loss rate before the Roberts Court up to 68% (60 of 88 cases).  As we have reported in prior studies, this is significantly higher than the Chamber’s success before the Rehnquist Court of 56% (45 of 80 cases), and dramatically higher than its success rate before the Burger Court, when the Chamber only won 43% (15 of 35) of its cases.

Yet another sign that government of the people, by the people, and for the people has indeed perished from the earth.  Or at least from the United States.
