1604 Franks et al. v. IEB

Case No: 1604


Although it would have made more sense to include all of the candidates in the rerun election, this is not a sufficient basis for ordering Local 7777 to conduct its election of officers for yet a third time. The decision to exclude the non-executive officers was not in direct conflict with any Constitutional requirement. In order to justify another election, appellants would have to show that the IEB’s decision deprived the membership of a fair election, and they have not done that.
