O’Melveny’s Dellinger Speaks About Supreme Court Decisions in Numerous Outlets

June 27, 2014

O’Melveny’s Walter Dellinger commented on recent Supreme Court decisions in numerous outlets, including WNYC and The Dish. In the June 26, 2014, “Takeaways from Supreme Court Rulings on Buffer Zones, Recess Picks,” Dellinger was interviewed about the President’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board being ruled unconstitutional, saying, “If the president's party doesn’t control the Senate, then I think we're in for a bumpy ride in terms of the functioning of government." In the June 26, 2014, “A Victory for Digital Privacy, Continued,” Dellinger spoke about the decision in Riley v California, saying “the court may no longer be the head cheerleader for the war on drugs.” In Bloomberg's July 1, 2014, "For-Profit, Closely Held Corporations Can Opt Out of Contraceptive Mandate," Dellinger spoke about the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case that released closely held, for-profit companies from contraceptive coverage regulations under the Affordable Care Act. The article quoted Dellinger from an American Constitution Society for Law & Policy teleconference saying "that the case presents a 'major development,' in that the court never before has allowed an exemption that transfers to a third party the burden of providing a benefit the exempted party was supposed to provide."
