U.S. Supreme Court Strikes Down Obama Labor Board Recess Appointments

Right to Work Foundation attorneys argued Obama's purported recess appointments were invalid because Senate was not in recess

Washington, DC (June 26, 2014) – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down President Barack Obama's controversial purported "recess appointments" to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys filed an amicus curiae brief in the case, Noel Canning v. NLRB. The brief was filed for the Foundation and Jeanette Geary, a worker who is receiving free legal assistance from Foundation staff attorneys in a case pending before the Board, which had been decided in part by the faux Board. Foundation staff attorneys had challenged the recess appointments in nearly a dozen other pending NLRB cases.
