The Supreme Court of the United States Closes Door in Gundy vs United States, but Leaves Open Window for Future Cases

In a 5-3 decision, the justices ruled against Herman Gundy’s argument that in passing the law, Congress handed too much power to the U.S. attorney general in violation of the nondelegation doctrine. Justice Gorsuch’s dissent and Justice Alito’s concurrence provide an open window to future cases.

NCLA put out the following statement:

"NCLA agrees with the Gundy vs United States dissenters that allowing 'the nation's chief prosecutor the power to write his own criminal code' is 'delegation running riot'-even for this single statute.  However, we take solace in the apparent willingness of four justices to reconsider the nondelegation doctrine in short order, and NCLA will be on the lookout for an appropriate case to bring to the Court’s attention for that purpose."  -Mark Chenoweth, Executive Director and General Counsel of NCLA
