Supreme Court Strikes Down President's NLRB Recess Appointments

By Megan Erickson Moritz

The US Supreme Court today ruled that President Obama lacked authority to appoint three National Labor Relations Board members in 2012 during a short Senate break.  All nine Justices agreed the President's so-called "recess appointments" were unconstitutional.  This ruling impacts -- and probably invalidates -- hundreds of Board decisions that have been issued since the unconstitutional appointments.  There will surely be more to come as we unravel the impact of this important case.

The National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning decision is available here.
