Mr. Trotter talked about the case before the U.S. Supreme Court involving the First Amendment rights of a teachers' union. On January 10 the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in two consolidated cases on ways that teacher unions spend their dues. The Justices considered the constitutionality of a Washington state law that prohibits unions from spending fees it collects from school employees who choose not to be union members for political activity without first getting permission from the non-union teachers. The cases are Davenport v. Washington Education Association and Washington v. Washington Education Association. The guest responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
