Sunday's New York Times has a nice article discussing a recent study prepared by Lee Epstein, who teaches law and political science at the
University of Southern California; William M. Landes, an economist at the
University of Chicago; and Judge Richard A. Posner, of the federal appeals
court in Chicago, who teaches law at the University of Chicago. Published in
the Minnesota Law Review, the study finds that the Robert's Court is far friendlier to business than those of any court since at least World War II. I don't think this will come as a surprise to many consumer lawyers or professors.
