This week the blog will publish a multi-part online symposium on United States v. Texas, a challenge by Texas and twenty-five states to the Obama administration's deferred-action policy for immigration. Contributions to this special feature, as well as an “explainer” by this blog's Lyle Denniston, are available here.

General Electric Co. v. Jackson

Petition for certiorari denied on June 6, 2011
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-871 D.C. Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2010

Issue: (1) Whether a unilateral administrative order's (UAO's) imposition of either significant response costs or significant decreases in a potentially responsible party's stock price and credit rating constitute a deprivation of property under the Due Process Clause; and (2) whether the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act's UAO scheme impermissibly coerces compliance in violation of the Due Process Clause by conditioning any judicial review of a UAO upon the threat of treble damages and fines that accumulate at EPA's sole discretion.
