Case

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo (December 2022)

The fishermen in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo must navigate a maze of complicated and often contradictory regulations. That burden became more difficult after the Supreme Court’s 1984 decision in Chevron v. National Resources Defense Counsel, which now requires courts to take the side of the federal regulator any time a law passed by Congress is deemed ambiguous. The petitioners in Loper Bright want to put a stop to this, and the Liberty Justice Center has joined the Cato Institute in filing an amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to take the fishermen’s case, and make clear that it is the role of the courts, rather than unaccountable bureaucrats, to say what the law is.
