International Brotherhood of Teamsters v. Wohl

No. 901

October Term 1940

Argued January 13, 1942

Decided March 30, 1942

315 U.S. 769


1. Members of a labor union of drivers engaged in the distribution of baked goods, in an endeavor to induce peddlers to work but six days a week and to hire an unemployed union member one day a week, peacefully picketed bakeries from which the peddler obtained their goods, and places of business of the peddlers' customers, carrying placards with the peddlers' names and a true statement of the union's grievance.

Held, that a state court injunction against such picketing was an unconstitutional invasion of the right of free speech. Pp. 315 U. S. 772, 315 U. S. 775.

2. The right of free speech does not depend in such a case on whether or not a "labor dispute," as defined by the state statutes, is involved. P. 315 U. S. 774.

284 N.Y. 788, 31 N.E.2d 765, reversed.

Certiorari, 313 U.S. 548, to review the affirmance of a judgment sustaining an injunction. A petition for rehearing of the judgment of reversal, id., was granted, 314 U.S. 701.
