a press conference announcing this new rule, Powers reads the text of the regulation and then asks, rhetorically, “Who is laughing now?” But this just confuses the audience.) Fearing that Powers is about to make a test case of him, the notorious Dr. Evil brings suit arguing that MAGAA violates the nondelegation doctrine. Is he likely to prevail? POD1 Q: Which of the following best captures the issue facing the Court in Evil v. Powers? Whether MAGAA violates the nondelegation doctrine. Is this an easy case or a hard case?

After months of hard work, a broadly grinning Obama announces the approval of strict new limits on fossil-fuel-generated electric power. Within minutes, Koch Industries, Inc. files suit challenging CCCA as an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power to the EPA. Is this suit likely to succeed? POD2 Q:

Within minutes, Koch Industries, Inc. files suit challenging SOPNA as an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power to the EPA. Is this suit likely to succeed?
