Amicus Briefs

Consumers’ Research; By Two, L.P. v. Consumer Product Safety Commission

NCLA is particularly disturbed by government officials not answerable to the President who are purportedly authorized by statute to usurp his Article II power to enforce the law. In Consumers’ Research v. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NCLA pointed out that Congress has authorized the Commissioners of CPSC to exercise executive powers, including the power to commence litigation. But CPSC Commissioners may not be removed at will by the President. Because they are not subject to his at-will removal, the Commission may not exercise the executive power.

In April 2024, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit denied the Plaintiffs’ petition for an en banc rehearing in this case.
