Texas led a seven state coalition supporting a lawsuit brought by Oracle in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia challenging the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). The amicus brief explains how OFCCP’s vast regulatory system for investigating government contractors violates the constitutional principle of separation of powers. The amicus brief explains that OFCCP can advance goals of addressing discrimination and ensuring equal employment opportunities without exercising legislative, adjudicative, and judicial powers not granted by the Constitution.
