Chamber of Commerce wins with Supreme Court cases


While the gay and lesbian community is celebrating the Supreme Court ruling that struck down California’s Defense of Marriage Act, another group can also be happy about high court decisions this term—the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

According to the Constitutional Accountability Center (CAC), the chamber has a 78 percent success rate in recent Supreme Court decisions, finding itself on the winning side in 14 out of 17 cases in which it filed amicus briefs.

An amicus brief is a court document filed by a party not directly related to a case, but which is used to influence the court’s decision.
