Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In defendant-Amtrak's appeal from an order setting aside an award issued by a special adjustment board constituted pursuant to the Railway Labor Act (RLA), the order is reversed where the board did not exceed its jurisdiction under the RLA when it held that Amtrak was permitted to discipline an employee for conduct that occurred while that employee was functioning as a union representative.
