  • On May 14, 2012, United States District Court Judge James E. Boasberg held that the National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB" or "Board") "Speedy Election Rule" (sometimes "Rule") was not properly adopted because the Board lacked a quorum when the final vote on the Rule was taken. The Rule was "adopted" December 21, 2011, went into "effect" April 30, 2012, and, on May 14, 2012 found void. Unless there is a successful appeal or the rule is re-promulgated, it will remain unenforceable.
