Judge Jordan speaks on the administrative state

Third Circuit Judge Kent Jordan spoke this week at a program at the National Constitution Center as part of a panel on the Constitution and the Administrative State. Video of the panel is available on Youtube at this link. His fellow panelist is Ninth Circuit Judge William Fletcher, and it’s an interesting and often dazzling dialogue.

And provocative! After observing that “something has gone off the rails here in terms of the structure of government,” Judge Jordan dropped this at the 12:02 mark: “Well, the first thing I would do is politely escort Chevron to the door and say, ‘it’s been nice knowing you, don’t come back.'”
