  •  In my view this case will not throw out all recess (0+ / 0-)

    appointments, just the ones made by obama while the Senate was in pro forma session. recess appointments can be made while congress is on holiday or summer break, if there are vacancies open- and to my knowledge there are still dozens of them in various courts and agencies through the government. if the president had simply done this while congress was on winter break, this likely doesnt get dragged before the SC.  but by doing this while the senate was technically in session, hes going to get a wrist slap..

    •  Maybe, although I won't be surprised if (0+ / 0-)

      the SCOTUS agreed with the DC Court of Appeals. I don't think there will be anything that will change the result of any cases already decided but recess appointment may be very restricted going forward.
