    If the SCOTUS doesn’t outright bar the application of the law to companies, it must indicate to lower courts the reasonable standards to apply to companies in such cases in establishing responsibility. One issue I see immediately is a series of transactions between several companies being linked back to a US bank. What number of transactions allows the bank to control the final disbursement of money linked to terrorism?

      That’s a very interesting question for the lower courts. I would also like to see extensive clarification on this. Just about any law that is that old would have a mishmash of different precedent and should probably be ordered by modern legislation.

    Actually, it’s more an issue of employees who didn’t know what they were allowed to do while on the job took it upon themselves to violate rules agreed to in the collective bargaining agreement to follow their own rules and their political objectives.

    If you spent time on YOUR job doing political activism, how long do you think your employer would tolerate it if your activity became public knowledge, thus alienating about half of its customers/ clients? That’s right; only a matter of a few hours until HR and Legal were called in to draw up a pink slip for you.
