DOCKET NO.: 372

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.”
Does the injunction abridge free speech and press?
