Dow Settles for $835 Million Rather than Fighting on Without Scalia


According to the New York Times Deal Book, Dow has changed its legal strategy and announced that it would settle a decade-long lawsuit for a payment of almost $1 billion.  The change in strategy is said to be prompted by the death on Antonin Scalia and the likelihood of at least a  4-4 split on the Supreme Court for the foreseeable future.

So, despite the obstruction of the Republicans in the Senate, the death of Scalia is having the expected effect: far-right “conservative” positions will be less likely to receive support even if there is no ninth Justice.
