in re “SCOTUS Deferred to Executive Agencies. What Happened Next Will Infuriate You!”
Near the end of Ilya’s article, he states, “as recently as 2011, Justice Scalia criticized the ruling as being ‘contrary to [the] fundamental principles of separation of powers.'”
Wait, didn’t Scalia write the opinion for a unanimous decision? I find it ironic considering the subject of the case is shifting government opinions.
