Jim BurnleyChris Climo, and Ron Jacobs filed an amicus brief on behalf of the National Association of Manufacturers, National Retail Federation, and U.S. Chamber of Commerce with the U.S. Supreme Court. The brief urges the Court to hear an appeal of a decision from the Ninth Circuit that found that freight brokers can be subject to state-law tort claims. The brief explains how this decision will have far-reaching effects on the trucking industry, which transports 72 percent of freight in the United States, and on manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.
