If you were a corporation and wanted to influence government for your own benefit, choosing to persuade judges is a far easier task (and less expensive) than persuading Congress or the White House. Although, Monsanto recently made headlines when they partnered with Senator Roy Blunt to sneak protections for the GMO industry into a recently passed appropriations act, success like this is hard earned in the legislature. Now Monsanto faces what will be a highly publicized repeal effort.
The ability to persuade Judges has immediate benefits. Say, for instance, that your negligence accidentally results in an oil-rig blowing up, killing several workers onboard, and dumping millions of barrels of crude oil in the Gulf of Mexico.

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
