Court Rules Against Obama's "Recess" Appointments

Via Gateway Pundit:

A federal court has ruled that President Obama's appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, made last year, were illegal because the Senate was not actually in a recess.  The presidential power to make recess appointments does not cover "intra-session" appointments, made when the Congress takes a short break, but only appointments made after a session is adjourned permanently.

Read the story at the Washington Times.

Also, at the Right Scoop, Mark Levin discusses the court's ruling.
