March 18, 2013 – The Roberts Court is generally perceived as "pro-business" in its decisions, but a Supreme Court analyst will argue that the reputation is simply false. Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies and Editor-in-Chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review at the Cato Institute will explain his position in a lunch hour talk Tuesday sponsored by the Federalist Society at the University of Houston Law Center.  In his lecture, "Is the Roberts Court Pro-Business, Pro-Market, Pro-Conservative, or Something Else?" Shapiro will discuss how the court's decisions fall on both sides of business issues with some decisions unanimous and others split 5-4 and majority opinions written by everyone from Justice Ginsburg to Justice Thomas.  More importantly, he maintains, is whether the court "got it right." The lecture begins at noon in room 240 BLB.
