The Supreme Court Takes Down Chevron in Crushing Defeat for Unelected Bureaucrats!

In a major victory for conservatives, the Supreme Court handed down a new ruling on the Chevron case from 1984 that strips unelected bureaucrats of their undue power!

– The Supreme Court recently ruled on the Chevron Deference rule.

– This ruling has allowed regulatory agencies significant latitude in interpreting vague environmental and other laws passed by Congress, effectively granting them almost unchecked regulatory authority.

– The recent Supreme Court decision marks a departure from this practice, potentially offering a pathway for legal challenges against federal regulatory overreach.

The Supreme Court ruled on what’s called the Chevron Deference rule. The Chevron decision was determined in 1984 in what’s called the Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council case. The Supreme Court ruled that courts had to give deference to federal agencies as the experts when it comes to creating regulations based on an ambiguous law.

What that means is that Congress routinely enacts open-ended laws such as vague and ambiguous environmental laws. Then they give huge latitude to regulatory agencies to work out the details, and they can even continue to change and adjust the details as time goes on. This is why regulatory agencies have had so much power. The Supreme Court, in the Chevron decision back in 1984, gave regulatory agencies almost unlimited power in that there was no legal recourse to challenge their regulations.

The Chevron decision basically made regulatory agencies the “experts” in their respective fields, and the courts were basically required to just defer to the regulatory agencies’ “interpretation” of the ambiguous or vague law passed by congress. For the past 40 years, federal agencies have been able to “interpret” laws to mean whatever they want, and the courts basically had to just go along with it.

That’s why the legal practice was called Chevron Deference, and it put unelected bureaucrats in charge of the country. This is how The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was able to mandate that everyone who worked for a large company had to get vaccinated or else be fired.

No law gave OSHA that authority, unelected regulatory officials just made it up. That mandate got smacked down by the Supreme Court, but now they are overturning the very decision that gave them that deferred authority in the first place. Now we finally have a legal recourse to push back against the federal regulatory apparatus.

If you want to see how out of touch our ruling class is, we can look to this tweet from the ultra-leftist Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe:

This law professor is lamenting all the job losses among lawyers that will come from this Chevron decision. Liz Wheeler responded: ‘yes, The real victims of Chevron are certainly the lawyers who helped write & enforce unconstitutional technocracy.’ Another responded: ‘Constitutional rule is re-established and you feel sorry for… the lawyers? My God, man.’ And Tom Woods said, ‘I already support the Chevron decision; you don’t have to keep convincing me.’ The Supreme Court is dishing out some HUGE wins for the integrity of our constitutional republic, hopefully they will continue trending in this direction!
