If the past few months are any indication, it seems the D.C. Circuit has it out for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
In January, the appeals court ruled that President Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate and appointed two individuals to fill vacancies on the NLRB in January 2012 during what he thought was a recess break. Since the decision, Republicans have claimed that all the board’s decisions have been invalid since the recess appointments. The controversy also has sparked lawsuits challenging 2012 NLRB decisions.
