Gundy v. United States: The end of non-delegation or a new beginning?

The Constitution vests Congress—and Congress alone—with the power to make law. However, for decades now, the so-called nondelegation doctrine has been rendered weak and useless by a Court reticent to enforce the Constitution’s separation of powers and the unconstitutional lawmaking authority exercised by executive officers. Panelists David Schoenbrod, a trustee professor at New York Law School, and Mark Chenoweth, Executive Director of NCLA, discuss the Supreme Court decision in Gundy v. United States and its impact on the nondelegation doctrine in this Lunch & Law speaker series moderated by NCLA Senior Litigation Counsel, Steve Simpson.
