Columbia River Packers Association, Inc. v. Hinton

No. 142

Argued January 12, 13, 1942

Decided February 2, 1942

315 U.S. 143


A dispute between processor of fish, on the one hand, and independent fishermen and their association, on the other, concerning only the terms upon which the fishermen will sell fish to the processor, and in no way involving the employer-employee relationship, is not a "labor dispute" within the meaning of the Norris-LaGuardia Act, which declares that no court of the United States shall, except upon certain specified conditions, have jurisdiction to issue an injunction "in a case involving or growing out of a labor dispute." P. 315 U. S. 145.

117 F.2d 310 reversed.

Certiorari, 314 U.S. 600, to review a decree which reversed a decree of injunction granted by the District Court, 34 F.Supp. 970, in a suit by the above-named packers association to enjoin numerous fishermen and their association or union, the respondents herein, from an alleged attempt to monopolize the fish industry in Oregon, Washington, and Alaska, in violation of the Sherman Act.
