    Court: 2-Person Labor Board Can't Make Decisions

    More than 500 decisions by the leading federal agency that referees disputes between labor and management will have to be reopened after the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the five-member board had operated illegally when its membership dwindled to two.

    The high court, in a 5-4 ruling in which the court's leading liberal retiring Justice John Paul Stevens sided with the court's four most conservative members, said the law does not allow the National Labor Relations Board to operate while it is short-staffed because of political arguments.

    "If Congress had intended to authorize two members alone to act for the Board on an ongoing basis, it could have said so in straightforward language," Stevens said. "Congress instead imposed the requirement that the Board delegate authority to no fewer than three members, and that it have three participating members to constitute a quorum."

    We can blame the Democrats for this mess. Good Job party of NO.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Who in their right mind would think it was a good idea to run this department severely understaffed?

    Hey, this time we CAN blame the Dem's. The refused to seat any Bush Nominee's. So now the GOP is retaliating. While I DISAGREE with tit for tat childishness, I do find it quite impressive the GOP didn't fold. They will now, as the Media will attack them... but that's aside the point.

    excellent decision by the SC
    there was no quorum
    had the FLRB refused to take action without a quorum the congress and executive would have had to made an accommodation
    pity 500 cases must now be relitigated but the precedent would have been in error if the court had ruled differently
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
