Railway Labor Executives' Assn. v. Gibbons, 448 U.S. 1301 (1980)

Railway Labor Executives' Assn. v. Gibbons

No. A-1135

Decided June 28, 1980

448 U.S. 1301


An application to stay the District Court's preliminary injunction against implementation of the labor protection arrangement provisions of the Rock Island Railroad Transition and Employee Assistance Act in connection with the liquidation in bankruptcy of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, is denied. It appearing that a stay would set in motion a chain of events that would lead to substantial payments to employees of the railroad that would be unconstitutional and unrecoverable, a sufficient showing of irreparable damage to the estate has been made to support the preliminary injunction.
