NCLA’s Senior Litigation Counsel, Peggy Little, joins “The Morning Newswatch” with Tom Miller on NewsRadio WPJF to discuss the injustice of relying on executive orders to circumvent the legislative process.
Peggy Little comes to NCLA with over three decades of experience as a trial and appellate litigator in complex, high-stakes regulatory, mass-tort, class-action, products liability, securities, commercial and civil rights litigation representing individuals and high-profile litigants including Fortune 50 companies, financial institutions, public companies, and universities in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
• Executive orders issued by the president or a governor too often make law, and that is unlawful.
• The president does not have the power to stop something that Congress has set into place. E.g., the Keystone Pipeline.
• We need a courageous judiciary to stand up for our rights when bad laws are created during times of hysteria, like COVID-19.
