The federal government has long abused its power over common citizens, often shielded by the Supreme Court’s harmful “Chevron deference.” In Relentless, the government claimed not just the right to monitor the commercial fishing industry, but also the absurd right to make fishermen pay the costs of monitoring. YAF joined this amicus brief to ask that Chevron be rejected once and for all so businesses like Relentless are free to pursue profit without government-imposed burdens.
Status: This brief is in support of a pending application to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Date Commenced: July 17, 2023
