Friedrichs Petitioners File Final cert Brief — Await Supreme Court Action
Ten California school teachers and the Christian Educators Association International filed their final brief urging the Supreme Court to take Friedrichs v. CTA in order to overturn the Court’s 1976 decision in Abood v. Detroit Board of Education. The petitioners are challenging the constitutionality of state laws that require the payment of “agency fees” by non union-members as a condition of employment. Today’s “Brief in Reply” responds to the Union’s earlier “Brief in Opposition,” which urged the Court to take a pass on Friedrichs. The Court is expected to decide whether to take Friedrichs in the next month.
