Pacific Union Conference v. Marshall
Decided August 2, 1977
434 U.S. 1305
Application by institutional bodies of Seventh-Day Adventist Church for stay of the District Court's discovery orders, pending applicants' filing of a petition for certiorari in this Court for review of the District Court's order denying applicants' motion for summary judgment in respondent Secretary of Labor's action against them to enforce the equal pay provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, wherein applicants contended that the First Amendment principle of separation of church and state forbids application of such provisions to them, is denied where it does not appear that, at this stage of the case, certiorari would be granted to review the Court of Appeals' order refusing to grant relief by way of mandamus against the District Court's orders.
