What if federal courts no longer deferred to an agency’s interpretation when determining a rule’s scope or meaning? What if Congress could no longer delegate rulemaking authority to federal agencies? The United States Supreme Court came very close to making both of these scenarios a reality in its last term, and there is good reason to believe it may do so yet in in the year(s) to come. Join Jon Bloomberg and Bill Hefner from the Environmental Law Group, Ltd.., to discuss the Supreme Court’s recent Kisor v. Wilkie and Gundy v. United States decisions, the future of the issues addressed in those cases, and how overturning years of precedent on these areas could affect the regulated community.
Jon and Bill will also provide a brief primer on the attorney-client privilege and the attorney work product doctrine, including their purposes, scopes, applications and limitations.
