Three Minute Summary of California Teachers Union Case

Supreme Podcast show

Summary: On this episode we offer a brief summary of one of the Court's most controversial cases of the year - Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, which considers whether to overrule a prior Supreme Court decision approving of laws that require all employees represented by a union to pay the union "fair share service fees" for the cost of collective bargaining activities. Several California teachers argue that their First Amendment rights have been violated because they disagree with positions taken by the Union.
