A dispute over a relatively obscure fishing industry rule is attracting considerable buzz ahead of the upcoming Supreme Court term, as the justices will consider whether to overturn their decades-old precedent providing leeway to federal regulators.

Also this week, Walgreens accuses Crowell & Moring of serious ethical breaches in a nine-figure arbitration fight, and lawsuits roll in after the FDA declares that over-the-counter decongestants don’t do too much decongesting.
