Texas Labor Union Files For Bankruptcy


In the article, "Texas Labor Union Files For Bankruptcy," featured in The Wall Street Journal, attorney Kevin Troutman comments on the Texas arm of the Service Employees International Union filing for bankruptcy after a jury found it responsible for a campaign to bully a holdout janitorial firm into accepting the union’s organizing terms.

“If nothing else, it sends a signal that unions are having to re-evaluate how they organize new members,” said Kevin Troutman, a partner with the law firm Fisher Phillips in Houston who isn't involved in the litigation. “They can’t just attack companies with impunity.”
