Important case impacting public employee unions hits U.S. Supreme Court on Monday

United States Supreme Court watchers are excited about Monday’s oral argument in Friedericks v. California Teacher’s Association, which could stop once and for all compelled payment of union dues to public employee unions.

Ten teachers in California have sued the teacher’s union claiming they were forced to pay money to support positions advanced by the union — in lobbying, in negotiations and otherwise — with which they disagree.

There is so much happening with this case.  Read here the synopsis from the Center for Individual Rights, which organized the suit and today’s story in the New York Times on the topic.

If the High Court is true to form in the timing of releasing decisions in high-profile cases right before their summer recess, expect a decision in this landmark case at the end of May.
