On March 12, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced that it will seek, in consultation with the Department of Justice, U.S. Supreme Court review of the D.C. Circuit Court’s decision invalidating the appointment of certain NLRB members. On January 25, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that appointments to the NLRB made by President Obama in January 2012 during a purported Senate recess were unconstitutional. CFPB Director Richard Cordray was appointed in the same manner and on the same day as the NLRB members, and his appointment is the subject of a lawsuit currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The NLRB’s petition is due on April 25, 2013.
