“Corporate interests” is a very broad term particularly given the diverse array of corporations to consider with diverse array of interests. Certainly, there are direct examples, such a corporation being criminally convicted without due process of law.

But there are other examples. In NAACP v. Alabama, that corporation’s interest to protect the privacy of its members against a state seeking to intimidate them was necessary to protect the Constitutional value of free speech and association. I had no problem with the Constitution protecting that “corporate interest” (and I trust Senator Sanders does not either).
