The fallout from last week’s Loper Bright/Relentless opinion by the U.S. Supreme Court that prospectively eliminated Chevron deference is still not fully clear, but Reed Smith has put together a Chevron Deference Resource Center where we will gather perspectives and events to help guide industry stakeholders through the new post-Chevron world.

The Resource Center will continue to build in the coming months, but right now it includes two major client alerts, one on the general impacts of the decision and one on the impacts of the decision on the complex regulatory regime overseen by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Additionally, there is an invitation to attend a webinar on the impacts of the decision which will be hosted next week by Reed Smith experts.

General impacts of the decision

To examine the ripple effects of the decision across regulated industries  Selina P. Coleman, David A. Bender and Matthew K. Loughran from the firm’s Life Sciences Health Industry Group, Jonathan T. Ammons from the Energy & Natural Resources Industry Group, Edward B. Schwartz of the Global Regulatory Enforcement Group, and Hadas A. Jacobi from the Financial Industry Group have penned a client alert detailing the expected challenges and opportunities facing industry stakeholders as a result of the decision.

Additionally, many of the same experts will be joined by Emily L. Hussey of the Life Sciences Health Industry Group, Kasey J. Curtis from the Appellate Group and Amanda E. Brown from the Labor & Employment Group in hosting a webinar on Wednesday, July 11 at 2:30 PM EDT. The focus of the webinar will be on expected impacts of the decision across multiple regulated industries.

FDA-specific impacts of the decision

Of particular interest is how the decision will impact the regulatory regime governed by the FDA. Within the firm’s Life Sciences Health Industry Group a group of experts who focus on FDA regulatory matters — Emily L. HusseyRebecca Jones McKnightRachael G. PontikesCori Annapolen GoldbergSarah Thompson Schick, Sung W. Park, and Akosua Tuffuor — have written a client alert on the impacts of the decision on the FDA regulatory process. That process, which includes determinations of what types of products are even within the FDA’s jurisdiction and other statutory interpretations by the agency could be upended by the Court’s opinion.

Reed Smith will continue to track the fallout from the Loper Bright/Relentless opinion. If you have questions please check the Chevron Deference Resource Center and don’t hesitate to reach out to the lawyers at Reed Smith.
