Barker Painting Co. v. Painters Union, 281 U.S. 462 (1930)

Barker Painting Co. v. Local No. 734, Brotherhood of

Painters, Decorators, and Paperhangers of America

No. 477

Argued May 2, 1930

Decided May 19, 1930

281 U.S. 462


A bill to enjoin a trade union from calling a strike is properly to be dismissed as moot when, as the result of a preliminary injunction in the suit, the men have continued at work and the job which the bill sought to protect has been completed. P. 281 U. S. 463.

34 F.2d 3 affirmed.

Certiorari, 280 U.S. 550, to review a decree of the circuit court of appeals which affirmed a decree of the district court dismissing the bill in a suit to enjoin two trade unions and their agents from calling or fomenting a strike. The petitioner here contended that wage rules which the unions sought to enforce against it were unreasonable; that defendants were in a conspiracy illegal at common law, and violative of the public policy of New Jersey and of the United States as evinced by the Sherman Act, and that the district court had placed a construction on a New Jersey statute offensive to the Fourteenth Amendment. The opinion of the district court on interlocutory hearing is in 12 F.2d 945.
