6th Circuit Rejects, in Part, Challenge to Law Making It Harder for Unions to Collect Money for Political Purposes through Check-Offs

Michigan AFL-CIO v. Schuette, with opinion by Judge Sutton.

My favorite line: “As the unions read this language, it explains why there was no First Amendment burden in Ysursa, Pizza, or Bailey, where the government was a regulator and employer, and why there is a burden here where the government has erected a ‘negative; obstacle to the unions’ ability to raise political funds. But this slice of Pizza does not tell the whole story.”
