Description

The Supreme Court dismayed the corporate world Thursday by refusing to decide whether sneaker giant Nike's claim that its ads and statements defending overseas labor practices are constitutionally protected free speech not false advertising as a California activist alleged. Instead, the court dismissed the case without ruling on the merits of Nike's claim. That means a San Francisco activist can continue his lawsuit against the company under a California law allowing businesses to be prosecuted for unfair competition or false advertising.
