Briefing update in Fairfax Memo Challenge
In National Federation of Independent Business v. Dougherty, we challenge the so-called Fairfax Memo, a substantial pro-union re-write of federal law governing workplace safety inspections.

We argue that our action is procedurally sound and substantively convincing. We expect a decision on the motion sometime in early 2017.
