Pre-Decision Chevron Doctrine

Holland & Knight Webinar

Holland & Knight's Chevron Deference Working Team presented an enlightening webinar delving into the intricacies and potential outcomes of the Loper case before the U.S. Supreme Court and the potential impacts on the federal rulemaking process and the legislative process in U.S. Congress. The Supreme Court's ruling also could affect the future of major Biden Administration rulemakings on climate, environment, health and safety that are currently under review in the U.S. Courts of Appeals. During this session, attorneys Lynn Calkins, Rich Gold, Dimitrios Karakitsos and John Wood explore the implications of potential Chevron deference reforms and strategize on adapting legal, regulatory and legislative approaches in response to evolving judicial interpretations.

The Chevron doctrine, born from the landmark Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council case, has stood for nearly four decades, advocating for deference to agency interpretations of ambiguous statutes. However, oral argument before the Supreme Court hinted at potential revisions or limitations to the Chevron deference doctrine, signaling fundamental changes in administrative law.

This program aims to equip attendees with a comprehensive understanding of these complex legal issues, enabling them to navigate regulatory landscapes with confidence. Recently, Holland & Knight announced the establishment of a dedicated Chevron Deference Working Team in anticipation of these changes.
