The Supreme Court's growing embrace of arbitration continued Wednesday with a 5-4 ruling endorsing labor contracts that send age discrimination claims to arbitration rather than to federal courts. In another pro-business decision, the Court said the EPA may use cost-benefit analysis to set standards for power plants under the Clean Water Act. The rulings came a day after the Court dismissed a Philip Morris appeal of a $79 million verdict, leading some to wonder how pro-business the Roberts Court really is.
