What Happened At The Supreme Court Arguments In Janus v AFSCME
Yesterday, in Janus v. AFSCME, the Supreme Court was urged to overturn the 1977 case Abood v. Detroit Board of Education and end compulsory union dues for public employees. The very same issue was argued before the Supreme Court just two years ago in Friedrichs v. CTA, but when Justice Scalia died shortly after oral arguments, that case was left unresolved. Hopefully, with Janus, the Court will decide the issue once and for all, and restore the First Amendment rights of public employees.
