Above the Law

SEIU believes it should be above the law — state laws against discrimination, to be specific. Incredibly, the union tried telling a panel of federal appeals court judges that it should not be subject to a state law against bias. In other words, SEIU thinks that if it discriminates against one of its members, the state shouldn’t be able to do anything about it. Unfortunately for the union, the judges ruled last month that SEIU is subject to the law.

Of course, SEIU, always eager to spend its members’ money, decided to petition for a rehearing of the case, but SEIU’s petition was denied. Here’s a thought for SEIU: rather than spend so much money on lawyers to argue that the union should be exempt from the law, why doesn’t SEIU just make sure it doesn’t discriminate against its members?
