Business News Roundup: Cybersecurity, cap and trade, beer bonanza 16.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
FireEye Inc., Symantec Corp. and other cybersecurity stocks jumped Monday as a global computer hacking attack entered its third day, suggesting higher corporate and government spending on their technology will follow. Palo Alto Networks Inc., Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., Cisco Systems Inc. and Oracle Corp. are also likely to benefit, according to analysts. Just last week, Symantec reported revenue forecasts for the current quarter that missed analysts’ estimates. The chamber on Monday asked the California Supreme Court to overturn an appeals court ruling that the system, a linchpin of the state’s fight against global warming, does not constitute an illegal tax. Under cap and trade, the state sets an annual limit on greenhouse gas emissions, allowing fewer emissions each year. Businesses must obtain a permit, called an allowance, for each metric ton of greenhouse gases that they emit. The chamber’s lawsuit argues that the allowances are a tax that did not receive two-thirds approval in ...

California court upholds cap and trade 7.4.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
California’s cap-and-trade system to fight global warming survived a major legal test Thursday when a state appeals court ruled that the auctions at the heart of the system do not constitute an illegal tax. While the California Chamber of Commerce, which sued to block the auctions four years ago, could still appeal to the state Supreme Court, Thursday’s decision erases some of the uncertainty surrounding cap and trade. “It’s good news, when we really need some,” said Erica Morehouse, an attorney with the Environmental Defense Fund, which had participated in the lawsuit on the side of the state. Under cap and trade, the state sets an annual limit on greenhouse gas emissions, allowing fewer emissions each year. The chamber, backed by several other business associations, argued that California’s landmark 2006 climate change law, AB32, did not give the Air Resources Board authority to set up the auctions. The Pacific Legal Foundation, which filed one of two auction lawsuits that were consolidated into ...
