The Court has agreed to decide 15 business-related cases thus far, noted Mark I. Levy, chairman of the Supreme Court and appellate advocacy practice in the Washington office of Atlanta’s Kilpatrick Stockton. “That’s a pretty impressive number, about 30 to 40 percent of the docket, and a number in line with what the Court had last term and where it was 10 years ago,” he said. “That is a trend that is continuing.”
