Washington, July 13 (RHC)-- The White House touted federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s business-friendly record in a one-page memo handed out to corporate executives after Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court this week. 

The New York Times reports the memo boasted that Kavanaugh overruled federal agencies in favor of big business on 75 occasions.  

In one business-friendly ruling, Kavanaugh dissented in a 2-1 decision that slapped SeaWorld with a $70,000 OSHA fine over the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was killed at SeaWorld Orlando in 2010 after a captive killer whale bit her and dragged her underwater.  Kavanaugh ruled that SeaWorld should not be fined for their employee's death.
