    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    Amazon claims the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is “unconstitutional” in a new legal document filed on Thursday, according to a report from The New York Times.

    The e-commerce giant joins the Elon Musk-owned SpaceX in making similar accusations after facing numerous labor complaints from employees.

    The company also claims the NLRB’s hearings “can seek legal remedies beyond what’s allowed without a trial by jury” in violation of the Constitution.

    Like other government agencies and regulators, the NLRB uses administrative law to carry out investigations and make decisions.

    Amazon didn’t immediately respond to The Verge’s request for comment or a copy of the complaint.

    Amazon’s arguments are similar to the claims SpaceX made in a lawsuit filed against the NLRB earlier this year.
