Full Court Rebuffs Recess-Appointments Challenge

On Monday, we told you about one company's efforts to bring its challenge to President Obama's recess appointments before the U.S. Supreme Court. The challenge came in the form of an emergency stay application directed to Justice Ginsburg, which she wasted no time in denying. The challenger — a company, known as HealthBridge Management, that is mired in an ugly labor dispute — immediately redirected its request to Justice Scalia, who in turn referred it to the full Court. Today, the full Court issued a brief order denying the request. (Justice Alito's sister is one of the lawyers for the company, so he recused himself.)  SCOTUSblog has more details here.
