@alangura @Canopis2 Pardon my inexperience (not a lawyer). It seems you brought this case up because its a school segregation case & if I oppose corporate rights in this case would mean I "oppose" integration. I don't really enjoy "gotcha" type whataboutisms like this, but it doesn't even work here
@alangura @Canopis2 most of the school segregation parts of these laws were struck down long before they got to SCOTUS, and the others about "barratry, champerty, maintenance, running and capping" were targeted to the NAACP by making them about "race" issues only.
@alangura @Canopis2 If they applied to corporations in general, they probably could have stood. So I disagree with the majority that "corporations ... have rights equal to that of individuals". In fact, several parts of this case were later changed to distinguish apart *for profit* and *predatory*
@alangura @Canopis2 legal practices. The fact that this case is responsible for the most annoying ads on TV (IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE HAVE MESOTHELIOMA) makes it almost equally as bad as the political commercials we have to endure after Citzens United.
@alangura @Canopis2 It's not as if I'm arguing that corporations shouldn't have rights at all. They do in the fact that they are made up of individuals who have rights. But those rights shouldn't magically transfer, and have been shown to harm the public welfare when they do and are abused.
@alangura @Canopis2 When you have massive instances of single solo people incorporating themselves in order to gain more rights/protections under the eyes of the law... something is very foul in legal land. Maybe the answer isn't a legal decision & more lies in a Constitutional amendment. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
