And, somehow, that dastardly Chief Justice persuaded Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan to join along. And, the illusionist that is John Roberts cajoled Ginsburg and Sotomayor to write the opinions denying remedies to those harmed by the Argentinian dirty war, and closing the courthouse doors to victims who needed to pursue a consume class action lawsuit. The humanity! Such a court that is, in the words of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, “wholly owned subsidiary of Big Business.”

Update: Mea Culpa. I misread the holding of Hood. Here the corporation lost. But in any event, we have two 9-0 opinions.
