Has the Roberts Court Been "Pro-Business" in Its Environmental Decisions?

My own remarks at the Santa Clara Law Review Symposium on “Big Business and the Roberts Court” focused on two questions. First, what does it mean to say that the Roberts Court is “pro-business? Second, is there evidence of a “pro-business” orientation in the environmental cases decided by the Roberts Court thus far. I noted the usual caveats, of course, particularly the difficulty in reaching any definitive conclusions about the Roberts Court after only three years, and concluded that the environmental decisions of the Roberts Court show no evidence of a purported “pro-business” orientation. A summary of my remarks is below the jump.
