Friedrichs Decision

The Supreme Court issued a 4-4 decision today in the Friedrichs vs. CTA case. This was pretty much expected, although there had been some speculation that they would defer their decision until a ninth justice was confirmed.

The result of the tie is that the lower court decision stands, which means that the right of public sector unions to collect agency fees has been upheld.

As noted earlier, there are other cases working their way through the courts, so we may find ourselves in another existential battle before too long; but for now, this chapter is closed.
