    Hmm..wonder if this is the beginning of the end of Corporations being considered "persons" with limited liability.

    I thought the Roberts court was pro business, and thought corporations were people. What happened?

    Some Justices start off staunch conservatives and sort of get better with age. Like wine.:eusa_drool:

    Or, possibly, the meme that this court is pro business is total BS.

    As is the BS that everyone keeps complaining that the courts are treating corporations as individual people. Just because there was a ruling that allows corporations certain free speech rights as collective groups of people does not translate into them being treated as individuals. That has always been a bullshit complaint. The ruling then was correct as the ruling here. Public entities have no personal freedom right. They are public by their very nature.

    Corporations themselves do not have limitted liability, the owners do. As to personhood, why would an assembly of persons lose their first amendment rights by virtue of thier assembledge?
