Schechter Poultry Corp. V. United States

(295 U.S. 495 1935)
   In Schechter Poultry Corp. v. United States, the Schechter Poultry Corporation and Schechter Live Poultry Market were charged with violating the codes agreed upon in the poultry business in New York City under the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA). The Schechters were convicted and appealed, and when the circuit court ruled that it had no power to examine the maximum hours and minimum-wage aspects of the case, it went to the Supreme Court. On 27 May 1935, the court ruled unanimously that the NIRA was unconstitutional in delegating legislative powers to the president and regulating business that was not interstate. The decision dealt a death blow to the NIRA and the National Recovery Administration.
