UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 31, 1955
William V. BRADLEY, individually and as President of International Longshoremen's Association (Independent), a duly organized labor union and unincorporated association of more than seven members, and James S. Castellano, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs,
WATERFRONT COMMISSION OF NEW YORK HARBOR, George Price Hays and Joseph Weintraub, as Commissioners for the States of New York and New Jersey, respectively, and as members of said Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor and Samuel M. Lane, Executive Director and General Counsel of said Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor, Defendants
The opinion of the court was delivered by: KAUFMAN
In view of the history of adjudication relating to the Waterfront Compact, McK.Unconsol.Laws N.Y. § 6700-aa et seq., N.J.S.A. 32:23-1 et seq. and since the likelihood of ultimate success upon the points here urged is remote, I have decided to deny the prayer seeking an order restraining the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor, its two Commissioners and its Executive Director and General Counsel from enforcing Article IX and Article XII of the Waterfront Compact and Amendment to Regulation No. 7 and from performing other acts. In view of the fact that April 1, 1955 is the effective date of the Amendment to Regulation No. 7, I must resort to this short Memorandum, initially, with respect to that portion of the application which seeks a restraining order so that the parties may know at the earliest moment the disposition on this phase of the application.
A more detailed Opinion will be filed subsequently. See 130 F.Supp. 303. So ordered.
