NLRB to ask Supreme Court to review its latest recess appointments

nlrb.jpgBack in late January, a federal appellate court ruled that President Obama lacked the power to make three recess appointments last year to the National Labor Relations Board. More on that here.

In this press release issued yesterday, the NLRB announced that would seek Supreme Court review. Quoted below is the press release:

The National Labor Relations Board has determined not to seek en banc rehearing in Noel Canning v. NLRB, in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit held that the January 4, 2012 recess appointments of three members to the Board were invalid. The Board, in consultation with the Department of Justice, intends to file a petition for certiorari with the United States Supreme Court for review of that decision. The petition for certiorari is due on April 25, 2013.

So, yeah, um, that’s it for today. Unless Lady Gaga’s new gold-plated wheelchair interests you. Or maybe this nutty shootout attempt┬áby Ottawa’s Kaspars Dugavins?

Are you still here?
