Judge strikes down Labor Dept.'s 'persuader rule'

The Washington Examiner reports:
A Texas District Court judge granted a permanent injunction against the Labor Department's new "persuader rule" Wednesday, handing a defeat to the administration on its labor policy agenda.

The rule would have required most attorneys who advise businesses on labor-related issues to reveal all of the financial details of those arrangements. The rule was widely expected to cause many lawyers to abandon providing that service.

Judge Sam Cummings granted the injunction Wednesday, saying he agreed with the reasoning in a July ruling against the department which said the rule was "defective to its core" because it was "far too broad."
The Obama regime loses one in court.
