SUPREME COURT RULING ON CHEVRON

SUPREME COURT RULING ON CHEVRON

What You Need To Know

In its opinion in Loper Bright Enterprises et al. v. Raimondo, Secretary of Commerce, et al. published today, the Supreme Court overturned the Chevron Doctrine. Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the majority opinion, “Chevron is overruled. Courts must exercise their independent judgment in deciding whether an agency has acted within its statutory authority, as the APA requires. Careful attention to the judgment of the Executive Branch may help inform that inquiry. And when a particular statute delegates authority to an agency consistent with constitutional limits, courts must respect the delegation, while ensuring that the agency acts within it. But courts need not and under the APA may not defer to an agency interpretation of the law simply because a statute is ambiguous.”

Why This Is Important

This ruling is likely significant for the AACS GE lawsuit against the Department as the original case giving the Department the authority to define “Gainful Employment” relied on Chevron. Stay tuned for more updates about the AACS GE case as they develop.
