Legal Principle at Issue

NLRB, 461 U.S. 731 (1983), the NLRB may, consistent with the First Amendment, impose liability on an employer for filing a losing retaliatory lawsuit, even if the employer could show the suit was not objectively baseless?


Reversed and remanded. Petitioning party received a favorable disposition.
