Supreme Court Allows Unlimited Time to Challenge Regulations

For Immediate Release: July 1, 2024

Contact: David Rosen,

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In Corner Post v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the U.S. Supreme Court today essentially eliminated the statute of limitations for challenges to regulations. Rachel Weintraub, executive director of the Coalition for Sensible Safeguards, released the following statement:

“Americans expect that safeguards will protect us and our families from unsafe food, products, polluted air and water, and dangerous and unfair working conditions. This decision provides special interests, opposed to the safeguards that people rely upon, with more opportunities to challenge and seek to overturn these important protections.

“This decision, in combination with Loper and Relentless, which overturned the longstanding legal precedent of Chevron deference, and SEC v. Jarkesy, which undermines federal agencies’ ability to use administrative courts to impose civil penalties for violating regulatory protections, starkly impedes agencies’ ability to protect the public.”
