Graf testifies on ‘Persuader rule’ case, which leads to temporary injunction against Labor Department
Posted on: October 11th, 2016

Federal Judge Samuel Cummings imposed the injunction in Lubbock on June 27, calling the rule “defective to its core.”

A Wall Street Journal editorial said the judge’s ruling “could have been describing the Obama Administration’s entire regulatory apparatus.”

Graf was asked to appear as an expert witness because “for 35 years I was the only certified labor law specialist in West Texas.”

The Journal editorial also said: “The rule putatively updates the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, which requires ‘persuaders’ hired by employers to communicate directly with workers to disclose their clients, services and compensation. The real goal is to muzzle employers and help union organizers.”
