“Worst of all, EPA claimed in federal district and appellate courts that respecting the couple’s due process rights by granting them judicial review of the order would be a “disservice” to the agency.”
The Washington Examiner editorializes:
Oral arguments were heard Monday by the U.S. Supreme Court in Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, a potentially landmark case. The justices will determine whether the bureaucratic convenience of a federal agency supercedes due process, the fundamental individual liberty guaranteed to every American citizen by the Constitution. The case presents such a clear-cut choice about what it means to be an American that it will be a deadly blow to political liberty if the justices decide for the bureaucrats against individual Americans…
If the court fails to stop EPA in its tracks for flagrantly violating the Constitution, it will free federal agencies to proceed at will to erect “a multitude of new offices” and send “hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.” The last time a government tried to do that to us, we had a revolution.
