Atlantic Coast Line R. Co. v. Locomotive Engineers - 396 U.S. 1201 (1969)
U.S. Supreme Court
Atlantic Coast Line R. Co. v. Locomotive Engineers, 396 U.S. 1201 (1969)
Atlantic Coast Line R. Co. v. Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
Decided July 16, 1969
396 U.S. 1201
The Federal District Court enjoined the enforcement of a state court injunction restraining union picketing in a railway labor dispute. In view of the longstanding policy embodied in 28 U.S.C. § 2283 that a federal court, with limited exceptions, may not enjoin state court proceedings, and the difficult and important question presented here, the District Court's injunction is stayed pending disposition of a petition for certiorari to be expeditiously filed in this Court.
