Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
22-451 D.C. Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether, under a proper application of Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council, the Magnuson-Stevens Act implicitly grants the National Marine Fisheries Service the power to force domestic vessels to pay the salaries of the monitors they must carry; and (2) whether the court should overrule Chevron, or at least clarify that statutory silence concerning controversial powers expressly but narrowly granted elsewhere in the statute does not constitute an ambiguity requiring deference to the agency.
