Merrick Garland's Pro-Labor Rulings Run Deep on D.C. Circuit


The article, “Merrick Garland's Pro-Labor Rulings Run Deep on D.C. Circuit,” featured in The National Law Journal, discussed Judge Merrick Garland’s history of showing a great deal of deference to the NLRB.

Steve Bernstein weighed in on Judge Garland’s past opinions.

Only in four other cases has he ruled against even a portion of an NLRB decision, Steve said.

“To me, that’s pretty striking,” he said.

“He’s shown the NLRB a great deal of deference,” Steve added. “Some would say that’s not unusual, but I would point out he’s a member of the D.C. Circuit, and that circuit has been as skeptical of the board’s authority as any in the land.”
