Will the Supreme Court look to an expedited review of this decision, since the final decision logically will come form the 9 Wise Ones?
What is the immediate fate of recent recess appointees and the effect on future appointments by Pres Obama and the Senate's ability to block those appointments.
A federal appeals court said Friday that President Obama over-stepped his authority with a series of recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.
The case may wind up in the Supreme Court, and determine how far the president can go in appointing people whose nominations would be filibustered in the Senate.
The result could affect the standing of other Obama appointees, such as the head of the president's new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Richard Cordray.
It's not known if the Supreme Court will step into this White House-Congress dispute.
As it stands down, the decision invalidates hundreds of decisions made over the past year by the National Labor Relations Board.
On Jan. 4, 2012 -- the same day he appointed Cordray -- Obama appointed Deputy Labor Secretary Sharon Block, union lawyer Richard Griffin and NLRB counsel Terence Flynn to fill vacancies on labor relations board -- those are the appointments in question.
