Judge denies Boeing motion to dismiss NLRB case
The Hill ^ | 6/30/2011 | Keith Laing

Posted on 06/30/2011 3:11:23 PM PDT by Loud Mime

A judge dismissed airplane manufacturer Boeing's attempt to have a National Labor Relations Board case against it dismissed Thursday.

The NLRB has alleged Boeing chose to locate a new plant to build 787 airplanes in South Carolina instead of Washington state in retaliation for strikes by unionized workers there. Boeing sought to have the case dismissed on the grounds that the NLRB's claim was unprecedented, but Seattle Administrative Law Judge Clifford Anderson ruled that the case should go on.

"Having considered the entirety of the respondent's motion and found and concluded as noted above, I find that the motion is without merit and should be denied in its entirety," Anderson wrote in a 19 page ruling.

If I was Boeing, I’d say fine. We’ll shut down the whole mess and move to China. See ya’.

Actually, it may be fun to see this go to court. Sometimes some good stuff gets exposed to the light of day.

Boeing would be wise to join the industries and build plants in other nations.

Could someone explain to me why the federal government has any legal authority to tell a company where they can and cannot build a plant?
Federal not state

Boeing’s first mistake is not to make a motion to move the venue from Seattle, Washington. There is no way that Boeing is going to get a fair hearing in Washington. I would suggest Charleston SC as the venue.

China wont’ take them. China is in the initial stages of building airliners. They are having some US firms build their parts right now.

Once they take to the skies Boeing and the Frogs will have some interesting competition.

Since when is it his time to change from "I" to "We"? I had no idea the government owned Boeing?

They should just move operations to SC and screw NLRB and the courts. Obama does it. Why not Boeing. It is going to take open and blatant disregard for this administration’s tyranny to stop this madness. Just do it!

Since the type certificate for the aircraft is federally issued as part of the title, the feds can control the fate of every single plane off that line from the day it’s completed until the day it’s retired. They could issue airworthiness directives every week for decades to punish Boeing.

The first two clauses of Directive 10-289. Retitle and reword it a bit and send it to your marxist representative, if you have one, and see if they go for it:

Directive 10-289

In the name of the general welfare, to protect the people's security, to achieve full equality and total stability, it is decreed for the duration of the national emergency that:

Point One. All workers, wage earners and employees of any kind whatsoever shall henceforth be attached to their jobs and shall not leave nor be dismissed nor change employment, under penalty of a term in jail. The penalty shall be determined by the Unification Board, such Board to be appointed by the Bureau of Economic Planning and National Resources. All persons reaching the age of twenty-one shall report to the Unification Board, which shall assign them to where, in its opinion, their services will best serve the interests of the nation.

Point Two. All industrial, commercial, manufacturing and business establishments of any nature whatsoever shall henceforth remain in operation, and the owners of such establishments shall not quit nor leave nor retire, nor close, sell or transfer their business, under pentalty of the nationalization of their establishment and of any and all of their property.

No, we cannot depend on courts anymore. They aren’t about fairness and law. They are about prejudice in favor of rabid liberal dogma. What this country will end up in is Revolution.

Dunno ‘bout you, but there’s no way I ever set foot on a piece of Chinese crap with wings.

I’m seriously considering making book on how long that new 25-mile long bridge of theirs takes to collapse.

Boeing gets the award of the year for being the number one fool of the century for moving their corporate offices to Chicago instead of a right to work state....like Texas. Secondly their engineers designed the 727 an airplane that was a POS to land in ground effect and thirdly they let this proceed in that socialist shithole state of Washington....Fools All....

Boeing should GO GALT!

Really? What if you have a significant portion of your investment portfolio in Boeing (BA) stock? Lets say that you are a money manager for a retirement fund and all of a sudden your investment in BA "Goes Galt"?

The corporate officers would instantly find themselves deep in investor lawsuits.

I just read those words for the first time a week ago, almost finished with the novel. What an interesting time to be reading Atlas Shrugged, read the novel at night and watch it happen during the day.

I’d like to see Boeing shut down and report that they will not manufacture anything until Obama and the democrats are out of power.

I know they wouldn’t do that because it would cost billions.... LOL, but I’d love it.

Can anyone tell me Why has the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, where fiscal legislation originates, and where budgets and appropriations are passed, continued to fund Anti-American institutions like the NLRB?

I thought this had already been beaten back. Did I miss something? The suit was dismissed by a court last week or so.

I’m rereading “Atlas Shrugged” for the first time since the Pelosi-Reid-Obama crisis hit America, and I’m appalled at the parallels between the America of that novel and what Obama has turned America into today. The idea that a thug in DC could even bring a court action against Boeing over opening a new factory in the “wrong” state is disgusting. The far left is simply evil, and their actions are inexcusable.

The parallels, not just in big government intrusion but also the decline of science, of journalism, and of education amaze me. Ayn Rand nailed it - pray for America.

I must admit this ruling surprised me. Perhaps the court will provide a reasonable ruling.
