This paper is an examination of the case Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council (1984). Using cases from the U.S. Ninth District Circuit Courts, from the years 2008 and 2009,1 examine how this case is being used today. Both behavioral models and models made explicitly to study the use of Chevron were used in order to determine not only how a judge cites this case but also whether their political orientation plays a role.
