Corporate America gets their wish
Glenn Lammi, chief counsel of the conservative Washington Legal Foundation, identified at least three possible nominees that big business would cheer: John Roberts Jr., Edith Brown Clement and Janice Rogers Brown. All three are federal appeals court judges.
Corporate America would favor Roberts and Clement because both were once private practitioners who represented business interests, experience the Rehnquist court now lacks. Given their past experience, the thinking goes, both judges might be friendly to corporate America.
