Supreme Court Strikes Down Obama Recess Appointments

Politico (06/26/14) Josh Gerstein and John Bresnahan

The Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional three of President Barack Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in a 9–0 decision today. The court ruled that the appointments were unconstitutional because the Senate was not truly in recess when the president made them.
The case was brought before the court by Noel Canning, a Pepsi bottler in Washington state. Though the appointments came during a period when the Senate was on a 20-day break, the chamber was gaveled in every three days, apparently in an attempt to stymie recess appointments.
The decision does not upset any current appointments.
