Professor Louis Virelli.

Professor Louis J. Virelli III.

The scope and power of our federal government is a persistent source of tension among voters and a fundamental issue for the health and functioning of our constitutional democracy.  Two of the Supreme Court’s cases this term have direct implications for questions about the limits of federal power and, where such power does exist, which branch of government may exercise it.  U.S. v. Bond involves the scope of Congress’ power to make our treaty obligations enforceable at home, and NLRB v. Noel Canning considers when the President may validly appoint federal officials without consulting Congress under the Recess Appointments Clause of the Constitution.  Each of these decisions could have dramatic consequences for how we address policy questions as a nation and for how we choose the people responsible for carrying out those decisions.”-Professor Louis J. Virelli III, speaking on this term’s Supreme Court cases to watch.
