Response to Ikonoklast (Reply #10)

11. The story does say "the family that owns the two businesses"

If they really are privately-held and not public corporations, that might affect the final decision.

If I understand what's going on here, the plaintiffs are seeking an emergency stay -- which would typically require them to prove there is a strong likelihood of their case being successful. That was the grounds on which Sotomayor rejected their appeal.

But it seems like the case could ultimately be decided in favor of family-owned businesses without touching the corporations-are-persons issue at all.
