Subject: BREAKING NEWS: Court Rules – NLRB Appointments Unconstitutional

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC circuit ruled President Obama’s recess appointments unconstitutional.

The case will now go to the Supreme Court. From the AP story:

  • “The Obama administration is expected to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, but if it stands, it means hundreds of decisions issued by the board over more than a year are invalid. It also would leave the five-member labor board with just one validly appointed member, effectively shutting it down. The board is allowed to issue decisions only when it has at least three sitting members.”
