Start : Monday, November 26, 2012 1:00 PM

End   : Monday, November 26, 2012 2:00 PM

Location:
Conference Call


We tend to think of administrative law in terms of "one issue, one agency."  But often Congress delegates to several agencies responsibility over a single subject.  It might do so intentionally, but sometimes this occurs unintentionally, when a new statutory program collides with an old one.  And so, for example, we currently are witnessing two independent agencies -- the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission -- litigating against one another in federal court, on the question of which agency has jurisdiction to enforce market-manipulation laws. These cases raise difficult issues of presidential power, congressional responsibility, and judicial review. What are the consequences of this dynamic?  What does it mean for the unitary executive?

Featuring:

  • Mr. Steven G. Bradbury, Partner, Dechert LLP
  • Mr. Adam White, Counsel, Boyden Gray & Associates


Agenda:

Call begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
