Terence Flynn has resigned from his position as a member of the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) in light of findings that he leaked sensitive board information to outside lawyers. Flynn was a recess appointment of President Obama, and was one of two republican members of the Board. He (quietly) tendered his resignation to the Board and President Obama over the Memorial Day Weekend.
According to the NLRB’s press release, Flynn’s resignation will become effective July 24, 2012. Cases that have been assigned to Flynn are in the process of being reassigned. The other Board members have also stated that they will “immediately resume deliberations and processing of cases.”
