This differs from the pattern of the Chamber’s participation at the merits stage, which has steadily increased over the same period. 3 percent for paid petitions and 1 percent for petitions as a whole. But obviously, correlation is not causation. 0% (0/7) actually affected the Court’s decision making. Indeed, given the Chamber’s sophistication, it seems likely that its lawyers only urged the Court to grant petitions that they knew were good candidates for plenary review. So while the Court has granted a remarkably high proportion of the petitions endorsed by the Chamber, it is unclear what inferences we can draw from this.

At the certiorari stage—where the Court’s resources are the most stretched, such that counsel can be most influential—the specialized Supreme Court bar disproportionately represents the interests of the business community. All of this means that the business-related legal questions that the Court ultimately decides could well be ones on which business litigants are disproportionately likely to prevail.
