For nearly forty years, votes to defend the Commission in cases challenging dismissals of
administrative complaints have been routine, pro forma acts. Even when the Commission has
split on whether to proceed in an enforcement matter, the decision to defend has been
uncontroversial. In recent days, however, our colleague Commissioner Ann Ravel has
announced her desire to upend this consensus. Not only does this effort derail longstanding
Commission practice, but more troublingly, it contravenes well-established legal precedents and evinces a flippant disregard for judicial review.
