No April foolin' - third lawsuit challenging DOL Persuader Rule is filed

We now have an April Fool's Day Persuader Rule challenge (but it's real). The National Federation of Independent Business leads this group of plaintiffs, and has filed suit in federal court in Texas, which is in the Fifth Circuit. The other two lawsuits were filed in Arkansas and Minnesota, both in the Eighth Circuit.

Here's our scorecard:


March 30 - Associated Builders v. Perez (E.D. Ark.)

March 31 - Worklaw Network v. USDOL (D. Minn.)

April 1 - NFIB v. Perez (W.D. Texas)

At least we get a couple of days off - what will Monday bring?
