The emergency filing was rejected by Associate Justice Ruth Ginsburg, who received it because it fell into the circuit she oversees. The move comes after a District of Columbia federal appeals court ruled Jan. 25 that Obama's appointments last January were unconstitutional because he made them when the Senate was not in full recess.

Ginsburg Rejects Bid to Nix
Illegal Labor Board Ruling

FOX News
The Supreme Court on Monday rejected the first individual filing related to a recent lower court decision that invalidated President Obama's three recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. The filing had sought to have the board's rulings invalidated as well.

The emergency filing Monday was on behalf of HealthBridge Management, which manages nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities.

In the company's 142-page filing, lawyers argued the board made rulings without a quorum -- enough members present to conduct official business -- because three of them were invalid. So the rulings should not apply, the company argued.

"This is an extraordinary request prompted by extraordinary circumstances," company lawyers said in the filing.

The emergency filing was rejected by Associate Justice Ruth Ginsburg, who received it because it fell into the circuit she oversees.

The move comes after a District of Columbia federal appeals court ruled Jan. 25 that Obama's appointments last January were unconstitutional because he made them when the Senate was not in full recess. The ruling immediately sparked speculation that some, if not many, of the companies that received unfavorable rulings from the board would file appeals.

Ginsburg could have either made the HealthBridge decision herself or have sent it to the entire court for a decision.

The case is related to a labor dispute at some of HealthBridge's Connecticut facilities. It asks Justice Ginsburg to stay a court order the board received last month requiring the company to rehire 700 employees involved in the dispute.

The circuit court ruling on the labor board is expected to be appealed. So HealthBridge lawyers argued the order to rehire should be halted until the labor board case is resolved.

Editor's Note: So, let's get this straight...Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was an ACLU muckity before being seated to the SCOTUS, and who is union sympathetic, took it upon herself to refuse to hear an emergency appeal on business-killing regulatory rulings made by a National Labor Relations Board whose edicts have been ruled illegal because of unconstitutional board appointments by Pres. Obama? Can anyone say grotesque judicial activism??!...Perhaps little known is the truth -- the truth; the fact -- that Supreme Court Justices can only serve when held in "good standing." Being a partisan judicial activist is far from executing the job in "good standing." If you want to talk judicial impeachment, this would be a great time...
