Gary Nolan and Mark Mix: Union Violence and Joe Biden’s Radical Federal Spending & Support for Big Labor￼
NOLAN: Mark Mix is with us. He is president of the National Right to Work Committee. We were talking about violence and unions. And I seem to recall that there is some exception in the law that literally can allow for violence without prosecution.
MIX: Your spot on. And that’s that shows a working knowledge of federal policy. And and what you’re talking about is a 1973 Supreme Court decision called Emmons and this was a decision by the US Supreme Court that said union officials cannot be prosecuted under federal extortion and racketeering laws for acts of violence that are used to achieve legitimate union objectives.
United States v. Enmons, 410 U.S. 396 (1973), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the federal Anti-Racketeering Act of 1934, known as the Hobbs Act, does not cover union violence in furtherance of the union’s objectives.
