"Potential Storm Over Removal Power of Tax Court Judges": Law professor Leslie Book had this post at the "Procedurally Taxing" blog in October 2013 previewing the oral argument at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit of a case captioned Kuretski v Commissioner.
Today, a unanimous three-judge D.C. Circuit panel issued its ruling in the case. The court held that a federal statute allowing the President to remove Tax Court judges on grounds of "inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office" does not unconstitutionally infringe on the constitutional separation of powers because the Tax Court "exercises Executive authority as part of the Executive Branch."
