A Regulatory Transparency Project Webinar

In a highly anticipated decision, the Supreme Court held in Axon Enterprise, Inc. v. FTC (consolidated with Cochran v. SEC) that federal district courts have jurisdiction to resolve challenges to the structure and existence of federal agencies whose decisions are subject to review in a court of appeals. The decision confirms that regulated entities in enforcement proceedings before the FTC and SEC need not await a final agency decision to raise these fundamental challenges—and it raises a number of questions as well. What types of questions are covered by Axon? Which other agencies are implicated by the decision? What does this decision mean for the future of administrative enforcement?

Join us for a discussion of this major development in administrative law.
