Not only Main Street [here in New Haven, Connecticut] is all abuzz about the U.S. Supreme Court decision on the employee rights of the majority of firefighters. So is Wall Street.
One of my sources for my syndicated legal blog contacted me about this ruling. Off-the-record, this financial-markets expert observed, "Isn't it ironic that Sonia Sotomayor was one of the judges who said this sacrificing of the employee rights of the majority for the sake of aiding the minority was perfectly okay. My opinion and that of many of my colleagues is that we want a middle road. Since this ruling came by only one vote, obviously we're not there yet."
