White House Touts Kavanaugh’s Business-Friendly Rulings

HeadlineJul 12, 2018
H9 trump kavanaugh

The White House touted federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s business-friendly record in a one-page memo handed out to corporate executives after Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday. The New York Times reports the memo boasted that Kavanaugh overruled federal agencies on 75 occasions. In one business-friendly ruling, Kavanaugh dissented in a 2-1 decision that slapped SeaWorld with a $70,000 OSHA fine over the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was killed at SeaWorld Orlando in 2010 after a captive killer whale bit her and dragged her underwater.
