More on Business Expertise and the Supreme Court--Skeel

As I was imagining possible candidates for the Supreme Court with business expertise, my initial thoughts were about my colleagues in legal academia. But it occurs to me that an even better place to look might be the business world itself. Three lawyers who have great credentials and are currently general counsel at major corporations are: David Leitch, general counsel of Ford, the one major carmaker that wasn’t bailed out, and a friend from law school days; Michael Luttig, a former federal appeals judge and currently general counsel at Boeing; and Larry Thompson, a former Deputy Attorney General under President Bush and currently general counsel at PepsiCo. All three are Republicans, but I bet there are at least one or two out there on the Democratic side as well.
