Obamaís Preemption Memo: Limiting Regulatory Preemption of State Common Law Claims By Matt Melamed, Public Justice Kazan-Wallace Fellow


On May 20, 2009, President Obama reversed one of the most nefarious practices of the Bush administration by issuing a memorandum (Preemption Memo) aimed at curbing federal preemption by regulatory fiat.

With the Preemption Memo, the President made clear his intent to limit federal agenciesí efforts to preempt state law claims merely by declaring that they would conflict with federal regulatory purposes. This position represents a radical shift from that taken by the Bush administration, which aggressively encouraged federal agencies to seek to preempt state tort law in precisely that fashion..

The Bush Administrationís Stealth Tort


The intention behind this and other Bush-era preemption preambles is clear: by attempting to strip consumers of their rights to sue, the Bush administration was pandering to the business community, which seeks at all costs to immunize itself from tort liability. Indeed, Bush administration officials had an unusually close relationship with the industries they regulated.
