This past Term of the Supreme Court proved “very tough for consumers,” says Robert Peck, president of the Center for Constitutional Litigation, in a video interview with The National Law Journal’s Tony Mauro.
“This is a court that doesn’t seem to like litigation, and especially doesn’t like litigation against business,” Peck said. “They’ve taken a number of cases [in] which plaintiffs are now going to have great difficulty achieving justice and recompense for things that happen at the hands of corporations.”
Peck discusses two of the cases that had the greatest impact on litigants: PLIVA v. Mensing and Wal-Mart v. Dukes.
