Justices true to the Constitution and the Founders’ intent may wake up to the havoc wrought on the American political landscape by the Bellotti case and its reliance on the flawed Santa Clara headnote. If the Court chooses in the next few weeks to hear the Kasky v. Nike case, it will open an opportunity for them to rule that corporations don’t have the free speech right to knowingly deceive the public. It’s even possible that this case could cause the Court to revisit the error of Davis’s 1886 headnote, and begin the process of dismantling the flawed and unconstitutional doctrine of corporate personhood.
