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.
