Appeals Courts Call Validity of 300 NLRB Decisions into Question
The 7th Circuit, on the other hand, completely disagreed, and upheld a challenge to an NLRB decision over arguments similar to the one relied upon by the DC Circuit.
The NLRB is supposed to have five members, but three seats are currently vacant. Then-President Bush nominated members to fill the seats, but the Democrats in control of Congress refused to confirm them because of disagreements with the Bush Administration's labor policies.
The split between the Circuits makes it likely that the Supreme Court will examine the issue. Until then, the subjects of last years NLRB cases will just have to wait in limbo.
