Lawyers Weigh In On High Court's Recess Appointment Ruling
Steve Bernstein, partner in the Tampa office, was one of several lawyers weighing in on the U.S. Supreme Court decision in National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning.
“At a minimum," Steve said; "Noel Canning represents good news for hundreds of employers who sustained adverse determinations between January of 2012 and July of 2013. While some will likely meet the same fate a second time around, that prospect is by no means a certainty, given the potential impact of two new Republican members, and four new members overall. These developments could also impact the business community at large. Forced to confront the daunting task of re-deciding hundreds of decisions, the board could get bogged down in exercises of retrospection that may forestall their current agenda for some time to come.”
