Read more at usatoday.com. [The three members of the appeals court are Republican appointees.] *Update: Here's a Teamster Nation post with interesting information about this development, including a prediction that the ruling will be overturned. Also, NLRB Chairman Pearce responded to the court's ruling. Stay tuned.
