Appeals court panel rules Obama recess appointments to labor board are unconstitutional

In an embarrassing setback for President Barack Obama, a federal appeals court panel ruled Friday that he violated the Constitution in making certain recess appointments and moved to curtail a chief executive’s ability in the future to circumvent the Senate in such scenarios.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said that Obama did not have the power to make three recess appointments last year to the National Labor Relations Board because the Senate was officially in session — and not in recess — at the time. If the decision stands, it could invalidate hundreds of board decisions.

3. Gee, only one day after Reid sold out on the filibuster.

Republicans will now break any handshake agreements they have, and start to flex their renewed minority muscle.

5. not really embarassing. if one looks at it

as 3 Republicans chose to ignore 150 years of law and they were put there by the last 3 Republican presidents. Oh duh Republicans disagreeing with Democrats. So if I took the word of those 3 judges. Obama wouldn't be president. as he's not American. X_X cause obviously the Republicans don't think he is. of course the Right wing media (Faux ) will have a field day with this but this isn't very surprising. Bout as easy an outcome as trying to run my electric shaver in the water while I'm in it.

Statement by Chairman Pearce on recess appointment ruling

Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit issued a decision finding that the Jan. 4, 2012 recess appointments of three members to the National Labor Relations Board were invalid. In response, Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce issued the following statement:

"The Board respectfully disagrees with today’s decision and believes that the President’s position in the matter will ultimately be upheld. It should be noted that this order applies to only one specific case, Noel Canning, and that similar questions have been been raised in more than a dozen cases pending in other courts of appeals.

In the meantime, the Board has important work to do. The parties who come to us seek and expect careful consideration and resolution of their cases, and for that reason, we will continue to perform our statutory duties and issue decisions."
