“In a concurring opinion he waited eight years to write, Justice Neil Gorsuch did not mince his words. ‘Today,’ he scribed, ‘the Court places a tombstone on Chevron no one can miss.’ The opinion came in one of the landmark decisions of the recent U.S. Supreme Court term. Overturning Chevron deference, a 40-year-old administrative law doctrine instructing courts to defer to federal agencies when interpreting vague statutes, was something of a personal victory for Justice Gorsuch. That victory also represented the full realization of a high court that conservative lawyers and activists have been seeking for a generation.” (07/08/24)
