Did The Supreme Court Just Declare War On Federal Regulations?
Loper Bright Enterprises v Raimando (Part 1)
Today on Legalese, we will be discussing the Supreme Court's grant for judicial review on the case Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo. This case is controversial because of the distinct (though highly unlikely) possibility that it may see Chevron Deference overruled entirely.

Chevron Deference is perhaps the most prolific legal doctrine in the whole of administrative law. This doctrine arose from a landmark Supreme Court case known as:
Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 467 U.S. 837.
Chevron was a landmark case in which the United States Supreme Court set forth the legal test for determining whether to grant deference to a government agency's interpretation of a statute which it administers.
We have discussed the Chevron case here on the show before as well as it's doctrine of Chevron Deference.
This case is again worth discussing because Chevron Deference supporters and detractors are both being told two different, but equally fallacious, narratives about what the potential outcome of this case may be and the impact that they claim it will have on the entire system of federal regulations and administrative law.
Today's episode is the first of two I will be putting out about this case. Today's video will focus on the background information needed to understand the Loper Bright case as a matter of law.
The second video, which will be released tomorrow will be taking a look at one article from the conservative mainstream media and one article from the progressive mainstream media to understand how political actors are using this case to manipulate and misinform the public at large (whether this is being done intentionally, or is the result of innocent ignorance, I cannot say... but perhaps that doesn't matter.)
Either way we will be looking at the potential motives and goals of using the law as a weapon to further a political agenda.
