Monday round-up


  • As Lyle reported for this blog on Thursday, Noel Canning – the bottling company that successfully challenged the President’s 2012 appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in the D.C. Circuit – has joined the administration in urging the Court to take up this case; at Crime and Consequences, Kent Scheidegger discusses Noel Canning’s request and examines the additional question presented that Noel Canning has proposed. 
  • Buzzfeed’s Chris Geidner discusses the prospect that, if the Court does not strike down California’s Proposition 8 on Equal Protection Clause grounds in Hollingsworth v. Perry, supporters of same-sex marriage could quickly hit a “roadblock” – thirty state constitutional amendments that ban same-sex marriage.
  • At the blog of Ogletree Deakins, John Martin summarizes the Court’s recent decision in City of Arlington v. FCC, in which the Justices held that Chevron deference applies to an agency’s interpretation of an ambiguous statute that concerns the scope of the agency’s jurisdiction.
  • Finally, at this blog, Amy Howe reports that the Solicitor General has filed four briefs in cases that will be considered at the Court’s June 13 Conference. These briefs recommend that cert. be granted in one of the cases, Air Wisconsin Airlines Corp. v. Hoeper, but denied in the other three. 

[Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys work for or contribute to this blog in various capacities, served as co-counsel to the petitioners in City of Arlington v. FCC. In addition, the firm is among the counsel to the respondent in Air Wisconsin, and Tejinder Singh of Goldstein & Russell is among the counsel on an amicus brief filed by international human rights advocates in support of the respondents in Hollingsworth v. Perry.]
