As state and federal appellate courts begin to examine the numerous Covid-related restrictions that have emanated from local, state, and federal entities over the past two years, it is important to remain apprised of evolving case precedent related to the emergency powers of government officials. Although some of these COVID-related policies have come from legislative bodies, executive branch officials -- particularly those in administrative agencies -- are often leading the way. Thus, an examination of judicial review of such policies inherently implicates an assessment of key administrative law principles, which this presentation will provide. Discussion will revolve around key decisions from state and federal courts -- including the Supreme Court of the United States. Other recent court decisions from the realm of administrative law that could have tangential application for this topic also will be discussed.
In this short session, attorneys will discuss the top five insights and pitfalls corporate counsel lawyers might confront in 2022.
