ACCG Ahead of the Curve?
The New York Times reports that Republicans are challenging the White House in the Courts alleging that President Obama has exceeded his executive authority in his administration of our laws. The ACCG made similar arguments in the Fourth Circuit only to have its challenge to import restrictions on "coins of Cypriot type" and coins "from China" dismissed. It remains to be seen whether the Republicans-- who no doubt will utilize far better funding to "forum shop" and file multiple lawsuits in different jurisdictions-- will have any more success with a federal judiciary increasingly dominated as it is today by attorneys who formerly practiced as government lawyers or state court judges.
