Audio Transcription for Oral Argument - January 16, 1957 in Amalgamated Meat Cutters & Butcher Workmen of North America, Local No. 427, AFL v. Fairlawn Meats, Inc.

Stanley Denlinger:

No, they continued on the --

Under the injunction were they allowed to picket?

Stanley Denlinger:

Yes, for a freedom about -- for the period about 20 or 30 days Your Honors between the time that the case was heard in the federal court down to the time of remand.

They picketed in direct violation of the existing order of the Court.

Yes, but after -- after the remand and -- then they --

Stanley Denlinger:

They discontinued, that is correct.

And they did -- didn't picket even away from the grounds of the employer?

Stanley Denlinger:

That is correct.

There was no picketing after or at the time this case was originally heard on the merits.

And there's no picketing going on now.

But they -- they just stopped picketing entirely instead of -- the injunction however didn't require them to stop, did it?

Stanley Denlinger:

The injunction did not require them, that is correct.

Only -- only required them to stop on the grounds of the employee.

Stanley Denlinger:

That's right.

Sir?

(Inaudible)

Stanley Denlinger:

Well, that was evidenced that seven or eight would gang up at the time Your Honor, but the mass picketing I think as Your Honor and I consider it of many dozens probably at gates, there was nothing of that nature.

There was no violence.

(Inaudible)

Stanley Denlinger:

Yes, that's right.

Change of shift and so on that occurred.

If there's no other questions Your Honor, I shall relieve the time at this moment.

Earl Warren:

Very well.

Stanley Denlinger:

Thank you.
