Chamber of Commerce v. Legal Aid Soc'y, 423 U.S. 1309 (1975)

Chamber of Commerce of the United States

v. Legal Aid Society of Alameda County

No. A-233

Decided September 29, 1975

423 U.S. 1309


In the course of an action to compel federal officials to comply with Executive Order No. 11246 (which requires Government contractors to ensure nondiscriminatory employment practices), the District Court entered an order requiring the General Services Administration (GSA) to disclose information reporting on affirmative action programs and related matters filed with the GSA by Government contractors represented by the applicant. Applicant sought a stay of that order after having been denied a stay by the Court of Appeals. Even though there is a substantial question whether the information is privileged by virtue of § 709(e) of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the application must be denied because applicant has failed to show that the irreparable injury which allegedly would result from disclosure is imminent.
