AAF Files Amicus Brief in Case Considering Chevron Deference

November 27th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom today filed an amicus brief in Relentless v. Department of Commerce, which could be the case in which the Supreme Court overturns Chevron. Chevron requires courts to defer to administrative agencies’ “reasonable” interpretation of supposedly ambiguous statutes, even when that interpretation is clearly not the most reasonable interpretation of the statute.

“Chevron Deference is regularly used by the administrative state to expand the power granted to them by Congress,” said AAF General Counsel J. Marc Wheat. “Overturning Chevron is an important step toward reigning in the administrative state and realigning the Federal Government with the structure established by the Constitution. We look forward to hearing the Supreme Court’s decision in this case.”
