Supreme Court Petition Filed in Union Dues Case

Friedrichs v. CTA, CIR’s challenge to compulsory union dues, is one step closer to the Supreme Court.  On January 26, Michael Carvin, lead counsel in the case, filed a petition for writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court.  The petition asks the Court to take the case and rule that the compulsory union dues laws now in effect in twenty-six states unconstitutionally force individuals to subsidize union positions with which they may fundamentally disagree.  If the Court takes Friedrichs, it will likely schedule the case for the term beginning October, 2015, with a decision likely by June 2016.
