Obama's Union-Friendly Supreme Court Nominee


The article, “Obama’s Union-Friendly Supreme Court Nominee,” featured in The Washington Free Beacon, discussed Obama’s recent Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland and his history of showing deference to federal labor regulators in reviewing unfair labor practice charges against employers.

Steve Bernstein weighed in on Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.

He said that Garland’s track record falls in line with the ideology President Obama has sought in other nominations.

“During Judge Garland’s 19-year tenure on the D.C. Circuit, he has developed a track record of authoring decisions that are consistently deferential to the NLRB,” Steve said in an email. “If Judge Garland is appointed to the Supreme Court, we can certainly expect him to continue to be highly deferential to the federal agencies in their exercise of administrative authority.”
