Ogletree Deakins • November 13, 2018
As lead counsel for National Federation of Independent Business, the Texas Chamber of Commerce, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Home Builders and the Texas Association of Builders (Plaintiffs), Ogletree Deakins filed a civil action against the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and others in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Lubbock Division alleging that a final rule promulgated by the DOL known as the Persuader Advice Exemption was unconstitutional and illegal. Ogletree Deakins secured a final judgment in favor of Plaintiffs on December 12, 2016. The District Court founded the challenged rule to be “defective to its core” and ordered “that the United States of America, its departments, agencies, officers, agents and employees . . . are hereby permanently enjoined on a national basis from implementing any and all aspects of the United States Department of Labor’s Persuader Advice Exemption Rule.” This was a major victory for employers throughout the United States whose right to effectively secure legal and other advice when faced with union efforts to organize their workers was threatened by the challenged rule. On January 18, 2017, the District Court issued an order awarding Plaintiffs $331,656.66 in attorneys’ fees, expenses and costs.
