SCOTUS Spotlight: Chevron Deference on the Chopping Block – Pragmatic Pointers About How the Supreme Court May Curtail Overreach by Federal Regulatory Agencies

Event Detail
Daniel G. Jarcho, Christopher J. “CJ” Frisina
January 18, 2024
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Administrative law experts Dan Jarcho and C.J. Frisina will bring lofty subjects down to earth in a practical discussion of how regulated industries may be affected by the decisions, presented the day after oral argument in the cases.

On January 17, 2024, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo and Relentless, Inc. v. Department of Commerce – cases that will determine the extent to which courts may curtail overreach by federal regulatory agencies. The cases ask the Court to overrule or narrow Chevron deference, thereby limiting how courts defer to a federal agency’s implementation of the statutes that it administers in regulating private industry.

The Loper Bright and Relentless cases are likely to have major implications for any business regulated by a federal agency. The Supreme Court is expected to delve deeply into the balance of power among the three branches of government and may cause a historic shift in administrative law.

The discussion will address:

  • The historical evolution of the Chevron doctrine
  • Questions raised by Loper Bright and Relentless
  • Insights derived from the previous day’s oral argument
  • Pragmatic pointers about the future implications of the forthcoming Supreme Court decisions in those cases
