Jones Day’s Review of Business-Related Cases in the Supreme Court’s October Term 2016
During what many have labeled a "quiet Term," the U.S. Supreme Court, working with only eight justices for most of the session, still delivered at least 30 rulings of particular interest to business and industry.
These rulings touched on jurisdictional issues, class actions, intellectual property, white-collar crime, arbitration, employee benefits, and other areas of broad interest. Notable decisions included a significant win for class-action defendants (Microsoft Inc. v. Baker), precedent-setting action on patent exhaustion (Impression Products v. Lexmark International), and a definition of the limitations on the Securities and Exchange Commission's disgorgement powers (Kokesh v. SEC).
This Jones Day White Paper reviews the Court's most relevant decisions of the 2016–2017 Term and analyzes their possible effects on the business community.
