The U.S. Supreme Court on a 4-4 vote declined to rehear a challenge by California teachers to a ruling that a union’s “fair share” agreement with the state did not violate their constitutional rights. The teachers had urged the court to hold the case until a ninth justice was confirmed and seated, but the court denied the petition for rehearing without comment. Legal counsel for the group said it was disappointed in the court’s action but “will look for opportunities to challenge compulsory union dues in other cases.” Bloomberg BNA has more on the case.
