RESPONDENT: Bucks Stove & Range Company
LOCATION:

DOCKET NO.: 372
DECIDED BY: White Court (1911)
LOWER COURT:

ARGUED: Jan 27, 1911 / Jan 30, 1911
DECIDED: May 15, 1911

Facts of the case

Samuel Gompers and two other labor leaders were convicted of violating an antiboycott injunction. The American Federation of Labor (headed by Gompers) had run a notice in its magazine listing Buck's Stove & Range Company along with other companies under the heading "We Don't Patronize."

Question

Does the injunction abridge free speech and press?
