Breaking: Last Two Cases of the Term

June 30, 2014

In Harris v. Quinn, No. 11-0681, the U.S. Supreme Court has distinguished between full-fledged public employees and home health care workers with respect to any obligation to pay union dues. More tonight/tomorrow, but the decision was 5-4, and does not appear to be the death knell for public unions that you may be reading about elsewhere. No good news for unions anymore, but the decision looks like it could have been much worse.

And Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, No. 13-354? Bad, bad news! Another 5-4 outcome, and the Court has seemingly made a hash of corporate law.

More by tomorrow morning!
