WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - In selecting John Roberts as his Supreme Court nominee, President Bush appears to have found a candidate that will please business interests.
"He has an understanding of the impact of regulation and litigation on businesses," said Glenn Lammi, chief counsel of the legal studies division at the Washington Legal Foundation, a conservative group. "He has a limited-government view of things."
U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue said Roberts is "well respected by the legal and business communities." Still, the Chamber, a powerful business group, will investigate Roberts's background.
