Supreme Court Affirms Friedrichs Decision

In an equally divided 4-4 decision, the Supreme Court affirmed the 9th Circuit’s ruling in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association yesterday. This means public employees in California must continue to pay agency fees to unions even if they’ve opted out of representation.

This is especially relevant when put in the light of the recent passing of Justice Scalia – who would have been the tie-breaking vote.

“With a divided court, thousands of public servants around the nation must still financially assist a government union that they disagree with,” said Trey Kovacs, an analyst with the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
