Steel Seizure Case

In Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that President Harry Truman’s seizure of the steel industry in the United States was illegal. Justice Robert Jackson’s concurring opinion in that case, often cited by legal scholars, emphasized the importance of limiting the power of the presidency. “With all its defects, delays and inconveniences, men have discovered no technique for long preserving free government except that the Executive be under the law.”
