Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

SEIU and CNA’s Lawyers Burning the Midnight Oil

That doesn\'t look intimidating at all.And SEIU’s saga continues.

The New York Times’ Steven Greenhouse reports  that the California Nurses Association (CNA) has lost its petition for a restraining order against SEIU  and its president Andy Stern.

The case between the CNA and SEIU is less than a month old, but its already generated more than 200 pages of court filings. I wonder how much this grand-standing lawsuit is costing their respective members? Court filings don’t write themselves; lawyers write them for hundreds of dollars an hour.

If you’re interested, I have put all the recent filings into a PDF (10megs). And if you want to keep tabs on the lawsuit, the most recent documents are buried deep within the Superior Court’s website.
