Supreme Court to Weigh Obama Recess Appointments

The Supreme Court "agreed to decide the scope of a president's constitutional authority to make recess appointments, a power that Democratic and Republican administrations have used for decades to install nominees without Senate confirmation," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"The justices agreed to consider an appeal by the Obama administration, which is seeking to overturn a lower-court ruling that invalidated President Obama's use of recess appointments to fill vacancies at the National Labor Relations Board."
