Today is 7-19. By a coincidence, as Professor Bainbridge points out, that is the record of the Ninth Circuit before the U.S. Supreme Court last term. We hear a lot of trumped-up complaining that the Supreme Court is biased towards business (though businesses only prevailed in half of the cases before the Court), but the Supreme Court is a reviewing court: when it reverses a lower court on a business-related case, it just shows that it is more pro-business than the lower court. How come no one is complaining about some of the lawless anti-business Ninth Circuit decisions that required Supreme Court reversal?
