Thursdays Supreme Court ruling that President Obamas recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board were unconstitutional could mean as many as 800 cases decided by the illegal appointees would have to be reconsidered.
The Court ruled three appointments President Obama made on Jan. 4, 2012, to fill out the five-member National Labor Relations Board, were improper because the Senate was not, in fact, in recess. That means the NLRB did not have a quorum, as required by law, when it ruled on hundreds of cases from the time they were appointed until August 2013, when other nominees were properly confirmed by the Senate and sworn in as members. This, in turn, calls into question all the decisions the NLRB rendered during that time.
Richard Cordray, the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, was appointed the same day and under the same circumstances as the NLRB appointees. But Cordray later was later confirmed by the Senate, and he subsequently ratified the agencys actions taken while he served as a recess appointee.

It is utterly incompetent of this SCOTUS (no real surprise) not to have addressed this in the ruling and yes they could have.
It’ll take them an afternoon to affirm all the decisions.
No one believes this will change anything already done.
Sadly most of the damage is already done, business are already belly up, or killed before they ever could have gotten started. Revising will only revive the more hardy and help fix things in the future.
So the entire cost associated with all of this will come out of Obama’s Salary- Right? Or least take it out of the white house budget.
This is all about Unions.........
