BB&D Successfully Defends the Dismissal of Petition Against Carpenters Union

BB&D attorneys Robert Blitz and Aaron Sanders successfully defended the Kansas City-St. Louis Regional Carpenters Council on appeal from the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by a former business agent.   The lawsuit centered around allegations of wrongful termination implicating a complex area of federal law governing unions under the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act.  The plaintiff attempted to bring twenty-eight separate claims in the lawsuit.  Relying on their vast experience in both employment litigation and complex business litigation, BB&D secured the dismissal of all claims.  On appeal, the Missouri Eastern District Court of Appeals agreed with BB&D and affirmed the dismissal.
