There were a handful of important commercial law cases decided by the Supreme Court during the last term. In an important case for commercial construction litigation, the Court described the remedies available for spoliation of evidence and how to determine when to utilize them. The Court also analyzed distinct issues in a variety of areas of commercial law, including contract matters and the extent to which the Fair Report Privilege protects the media. The Supreme Court also expanded the reach of personal jurisdiction and analyzed the role of a title company in a real estate transaction tainted by fraud.
