On this episode of ILR’s Cause for Action podcast, we share a preview of the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court term. Jenn Dickey, associate chief counsel at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Litigation Center is joined by Brinton Lucas, of counsel at Jones Day, to discuss several important business cases to be argued before the Supreme Court.
Jenn and Brinton discuss several cases, including Sackett v. EPA, National Pork Producers Council v. Ross, and Axon Enterprise, Inc. v. Federal Trade Commission. Sackett v. EPA asks the important question whether the 9th Circuit set forth the proper test on determining if wetlands are “waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act. In National Pork Producers Council v. Ross, the Supreme Court will resolve whether California’s Prop 12–which prohibits the sale of pork from animals confined in a smaller space than approved under California’s standards–imposes undue burdens on interstate commerce or otherwise violates the dormant Commerce Clause. Then, in Axon Enterprise, Inc. v. Federal Trade Commission, the Court will determine whether Congress stripped federal district courts of jurisdiction over structural constitutional challenges to the FTC.
We are anticipating another blockbuster U.S. Supreme Court term, with multiple cases having a significant impact on the business community. Listen to the latest episode featuring the need-to-know information on the upcoming SCOTUS term.
