D.C. Circuit Review – Reviewed: A “Two for One” Special

by Aaron Nielson — Friday, Sept. 8, 2017@Aaron_L_Nielson

Fall is here; we know this because the D.C. Circuit did not issue any opinions this week. Because I expected no opinions (this happens every fall!) — and, of course, because of Labor Day — I figured this week would be a good one to evaluate how the NLRB has done so far this year. After all, when things are slow, why not engage in a bit of review? So I asked my library to do the research (they’re wonderful). But then came yesterday’s news: Greg Katsas has been nominated to the D.C. Circuit. Accordingly, this week will be a “two for one” special: let’s cover both topics.*

First, how did the NLRB do between Labor Day 2016 and Labor Day 2017? Here are the stats from the good folks in the BYU Law Library:
