Supreme Court Takes Case on Obama's Presidential Appointment Power

Breitbart News has reported extensively on whether President Barack Obama’s recess appointments (those that do not require Senate confirmation) violate the Constitution. 

Early this year, a top federal appeals court held Obama’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are unconstitutional, invalidating a host of NLRB pro-union orders. Last month, a second appeals court agreed in a case brought by another company.

Today the Supreme Court granted review of this issue, which is a major case on the scope of presidential power.

The case is NLRB v. Noel Canning. The case will likely be heard in December, with a decision by June 2014.
