National League of Cities v. Brennan, 419 U.S. 1321 (1974)
National League of Cities v. Brennan
Decided December 31, 1974
419 U.S. 1321
Applicant States, municipalities, and others, which have brought suit challenging the constitutionality of the 1974 Amendments to the Fair Labor Standards Act, request, inter alia, a stay of provisions that go into effect January 1, 1975, following the District Court's denial of a preliminary injunction and dismissal of the complaint, which the court characterized as involving "a difficult and substantial question of law." In view of various factors, including that court's concern, the pervasive impact of its judgment on all state and municipal governments, and the brevity of time, an order is entered granting the requested relief until the application can be presented to the full Court at the earliest convenient date.
