Decided January 11, 1982
454 U.S. 389
Held: Where appellants, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1252, could have filed a direct appeal to this Court from the District Court's decision holding the Fair Labor Standards Act unconstitutional as applied to employees of appellee's mental health facility, but instead appealed to the Court of Appeals, the Court of Appeals' judgment must be vacated, as the court lacked jurisdiction, and, in addition, the appeal from its decision must be dismissed.
Vacated and appeal dismissed.
