Court Nominee Has Paper Trail Businesses Like - New York Times

CLICK TO READ: Court Nominee Has Paper Trail Businesses Like - Steven Labaton, New York Times

Another kick in the stomach for the little guy. And more good news for corruption. Read it and weep:

"WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 - Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. has reliably favored big-business litigants as he has pushed the federal appeals court in Philadelphia in a conservative direction.

His extensive paper trail of 15 years of opinions reveals a jurist deeply skeptical of claims against large corporations. A review of dozens of business cases in which Judge Alito has written majority or dissenting opinions or cast the decisive vote shows that, with few exceptions, he has sided with employers over employees in discrimination lawsuits and in favor of corporations over investors in securities fraud cases."
