In this edition of our quarterly Supreme Court review, we discuss what is in store for the second half of the Supreme Court term. In addition to impending decisions on affirmative action in college admissions, state legislatures’ control over elections, and the intersection of free speech and anti-discrimination laws, the Court will consider a number of important questions affecting businesses. We explore pending cases that will impact where businesses can be sued, what they can be held liable for, and how they communicate with their attorneys.
