The U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision in the Two Cases Raising the Question of Whether the Chevron Judicial Deference Framework will be Overturned: Who Will Win and What Does It Mean?
A special webinar roundtable featuring analysis of the oral argument by a leading Supreme Court practitioner and three prominent administrative law professors who are experts with respect to the Chevron Judicial Deference Framework.
The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled oral argument for January 17, 2024 in the two cases (Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo and Relentless, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Commerce) in which the question presented is whether the Court should overrule its 1984 decision in Chevron, U.S.A., Inc. v. Nat. Res. Def. Council, Inc. That decision produced what became known as the "Chevron Judicial Deference Framework" framework - the two-step analysis that courts typically invoke when reviewing a federal agency’s interpretation of a statute. In short, under Chevron, a court must uphold the validity of a federal agency regulation if it is a reasonable interpretation of a statute that is ambiguous with respect to the issue covered by the regulation.
The outcome of these cases may have profound ramifications for existing and future agency regulations. It might also affect earlier opinions of courts validating federal agency regulations based exclusively on the courts’ reliance on Chevron.
Our exclusive roundtable brings together three renowned administrative law professors who possess vast expertise with respect to Chevron and the two cases being argued. They will share their reactions to the oral arguments, important insights into the thinking of the nine Justices, predictions for how and when the Court will rule, and potential implications on existing and future regulations
