National Law Journal: Prof. James Brudney Provides Legal Analysis on Starbuck’s Union Planner Appeal


Professor James Brudney provides legal analysis on how the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit will rule on Starbuck’s challenge to an order requiring the reinstatement of union supporters discharged last year.

“If [the Sixth Circuit]announces a general standard for when chill either evaporates or abates, it might have consequences for other cases, but may also be sufficiently fact-specific to allow for further development in future instances,” Brudney said.

“To the extent that Starbucks has demonstrated a systematic approach to resisting unionization in its stores, the outcome of a case like this may affect its behavior going forward,” he added.
