Heading to the Court
Posted by Jayne Barnard

I'm lucky to be able to say I'll be in the courtroom on Tuesday morning for the arguments in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga cases.  Whether the Justices will ask -- or care -- about corporate law issues remains to be seen.  The vast bulk of the 84 amicus briefs filed in the cases explore the historical origins of the Free Exercise Clause, the legislative history of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, reproductive technology, women's equality, and employees' rights.  Only two -- the Corporate and Criminal Law Professors' brief and the brief filed on behalf of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce -- deal almost exclusively with corporate law principles.  Will corporate law be the tail that wags this dog?
