In January 2013, we wrote a blog post on NLRB v. Noel Canning. In that decision, the Federal Appeals Court for the District of Columbia held that Obama’s NLRB “recess” appointments were unconstitutional.
In March 2013, the NLRB announced that it would appeal the decision directly to the Supreme Court. Our blog post about that announcement can be found here: NLRB Will Go Directly to Supremes For Review of Quorum Issue.
The Supreme Court heard arguments in the case on Monday. For details, check out this blog post by the SCOTUSblog: Defining the Scope of the President’s Recess Power.
