As the U.S. Supreme Court gets set to kick off its 2017 term, court watchers have their eyes on a number of important cases involving civil justice issues that are likely to have far-reaching effects. Highlights involve collective-bargaining and the National Labor Relations Act, environmental litigation, the rights of terrorism victims when suing foreign governments, and protections for whistleblowers in securities litigation, to name just a few. Our panel of veteran Supreme Court litigators and legal experts will discuss the background and importance of key cases on the High Court’s docket and probe the possible avenues the Court may take in reaching decisions.
