Nothing less than the boundaries of executive power are at stake Monday as the Supreme Court considers whether President Obama violated the Constitution during his first term.
 
Oral arguments slated for Monday will center on a trio of recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that were deemed unconstitutional by lower courts.
           
If they uphold the decision, experts say the justices could endanger hundreds of NLRB decisions.
 
Even more significant are the ramifications for future presidents, with the court poised either to bolster or blunt the chief executive’s appointment powers.
 
“Rulings like this have implications that last for centuries,” said Michael Lotito, an employment and labor attorney and co-chairman of Littler Mendelson's Workplace Policy Institute.
 
Presidents have for decades used recess appointment powers when the Senate is away to install judges and fill top federal vacancies that ordinarily would be subject to confirmation proceedings.
 
But with the disputed NLRB appointments, Obama became the first president to appoint nominees when the Senate was in a “pro-forma” session, when the upper chamber is briefly called to order and adjourned every few days.

This will be the breaking news of the day but the MSM will still talk about a bridge and impeaching Christie.

Don't count on it.  This administration is basing their position on what George Washington did back when congress was only in session six months a year nd traveled long distances to be in session....

UPDATE:

As the hearing unfolded, the only Justices who consistently asked questions or made comments that appeared to support presidential authority to act alone to make short-term appointments were Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor.

I wouldn't read too much into the fact that those two justices asked favorable questions.  It's entirely possible that they were handing the solicitor general softballs because they're pretty much against it but wanted to give him as much room as possible to sweet-talk them into changing their minds.

It can be very hard to fathom what a Supreme Court justice will decide based solely on the questions she or he asks at oral argument.
