U.S. Court of Appeals Adopts Landmark's Arguments, Rejects "Recess Appointments" to NLRB
Landmark Legal (Mark Levin) ^ | January 25, 2013 | Landmark Staff

Posted on 01/25/2013 10:57:34 AM PST by CreviceTool

A three judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today adopted arguments advanced by Landmark Legal Foundation to overturn appointments made by President Obama to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Landmark argued in its amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief that the President's use of the Constitution's "recess appointments" clause violated the restrictions placed by the Constitution on that power.

WTG Mark!

His excellency now has a choice....either ask for a full court review or go to the SC. My guess is he stalls and goes for the full appellate review. I wish the court would issue an injunction getting them off the commission while this procedes to conclusion.

This is #92 on my list. The current version of my list is from just a few days ago, but I included this one in earlier versions of my list:

Here are 138 examples of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, government waste, and other misdeeds

92) Made recess appointments when Congress was not in recess In January 2012, Obama violated the Constitution by making four recess appointments when Congress was not in recess. Recess appointments themselves are constitutional, but only if they are made when Congress is actually in recess.

I bet this one sticks in his excellency’s craw. This guy was so close to blowing up before the election, just needed one or two more confrontations to his rulings and edicts. You are right, keep up the pressure because sooner than later if he gets enough of these set backs he will challenge the authority of the courts and that could lead to some great outcomes. Recall when they supported some despot in central america who decided he would just ignore their constituion and run for another term. His Excellency came down in his side of the argument against the court. That is the way this guy thinks, he is not elected, he is anointed for life.

A great decision that will end all future recess appointments by Democratic presidents.

The Dems would be dancing in the streets if this ruling had come down after Bush had recess appointed John Bolton.

And Republican presidents. This was a broad ruling that severely limits the President's (any President's) power to make recess appointments. Under this ruling, recess appointments are only available during the recess between Congressional sessions (so, every two years), and only with respect to vacancies that open up during the recess (as opposed to pre-existing vacancies that are still vacant during the recess).

How about Levin and Landmark Legal go get Obama’s real Hawaii birth certificate....instead of tying up our courts over something quite minor.

Obama Eligibility way more important than putting some people on a labor board. Of course, Obama removed from office means no more of his bad decisions

Great comment!!

It is so often overlooked that the great "defender" of the Constitution (LEVIN) is still hiding under his bed with respect to the eligibility issue.

C'mon Mark, man up!
