An Anti-Business Supreme Court?

The ABA Journal has a brief article displaying recent Supreme Court of the United States decisions that show a trend of favoring employees and injured plaintiffs. Among the employment law-pro-plaintiff cases:

The court has twice ruled for fired workers seeking protection under anti-discrimination laws. In one case, Thompson v. North American Stainless, the court ruled that a worker fired after his fiancĂ©e filed a discrimination complaint against their mutual employer may sue for unlawful retaliation under Title VII. In another, Staub v. Proctor Hospital, the court held that an employer can be liable for firing an Army reservist because of unlawful intent by a supervisor who influenced—but did not make—the decision.

  1. More like a PRO TRUTH bias. Not popular with conservatives who favor no laws at all.
