  •  Judge Drain, of Hostess infamy, also did miners (10+ / 0-)

    The very same judge that screwed the Bakers Union is the one who signed off on the split the company/steal the pension strategy that was used on the miners. He is fully aware that what he is doing is destructive of workers rights. He needs to be impeached or prevented from hearing cases such as these. Before he was a judge he worked as a lawyer in similar cases arguing on behalf of the companies against Unions in court. Now he sits on the bench and is too biased to be allowed to pass judgement. I wish there was a way to find out exactly how many Koch or Alec sponsored events he's been too.
