Remember those “recess appointments” to the National Labor Relations Board that President Obama went ahead and made last January, when the Senate wasn’t in recess? The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia today ruled them unconstitutional. The Obama administration seems inclined to ignore the ruling, with Jay Carney today declaring that it will have “no impact” on the NLRB’s activities. (Because, you know, it’s just some “court” or whatever.)
Well, we’ll see about that. There might be an interesting separation-of-powers scuffle shaping up here.
