On July 24, 2023, WLF joined the Independent Women’s Law Center in filing an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to eliminate Chevron deference. The D.C. Circuit used Chevron to uphold a rule requiring fishing companies to pay for federal monitors. As WLF’s amicus brief shows, federal agencies overreach their statutory mandates by invoking Chevron. This leads to more regulations, which invariably harm small businesses because they face disproportionately high costs complying with regulations. The brief was authored by Kathryn E. Tarbert, Gene C. Schaerr, and Annika Boone Barkdull of Schaerr | Jaffe LLP.
