Breaking: SCOTUS denies cert in Philip Morris USA v. Jackson

What pro-business court? It was generally viewed as a good sign for the Rule of Law when Justice Scalia stayed judgment in a Louisiana class action that ran roughshod over the due process clause in awarding $270 million for a smoking cessation program, and it was generally expected that, at a minimum, the Court would remand the case for reconsideration in light of Dukes, but, in a move that surprises me, the Court simply denied certiorari today, letting the verdict stand.
