Keep An Eye On Kennedy During Coming Session

That's U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, not the senior senator from Massachusetts. As Justice Kennedy goes, so goes the Court, indicates an analysis done by the Washington law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP of cases decided by the court during the term that ended this past July. As for the 1998 term, which begins on Oct. 5, so far some 13 business-related cases are on the docket. But not one of them -- there are three labor cases, two tax cases, and one case each involving antitrust, patents, telecommunications regulation, pensions, bankruptcy, contracts, class-action, and expert testimony -- appears to carry the potential impact of last term's four sex-discrimination cases.
