Supreme Court Rules President Obama’s Recess Appointments Unconstitutional
June 26, 2014

NEWS ALERT —

The United States Supreme Court ruled today that the three recess appointments President Barack Obama  made to the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 were unconstitutional. The Court stated: “Because the Senate was in session during its pro forma sessions, the President made the recess appointments at issue during a 3-day recess. Three days is too short of a time to bring a recess within the scope of the (Recess Appointments) Clause, so the President lacked the authority to make those appointments.”

This is a decision with broad ramifications that will force the NLRB to revisit numerous past rulings that involved the invalidly appointed board members.

As we have often stated: Stay Tuned!
