Jonathan Turley is a law professor at George Washington University, so he knows a thing or two about how the courts work.
On January 13, he stopped by Fox News to react to the United States SUpreme Court ruling to block President Joe Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandate that applied to large private businesses.
Appearing on “The Ingraham Angle,” Turley expressed concern about Biden’s “reckless attitude toward litigation.”
“This was a real close shave. They came within one vote of losing both cases, and this is the outcome that some of us predicted because you could tell that Kavanaugh and Roberts did not feel as strongly about this case. One of the reasons is that this was what’s called conditional federal spending — that, in their view, Congress gave these facilities money, and they can require a health protection as a result. And they felt just felt that nexus was close enough.”
“But ultimately, I think what’s happening here with the administration is they are adding to a rather long list of losses in federal courts,” Turley concluded. “You know, they lost the moratorium on evictions. They were repeatedly found to have engaged in racial discrimination in the use of federal farm funds. They lost on immigration policies. These are all very significant losses for any administration, and I think it shows a bit of a reckless attitude.”
