The Board denied the Respondent’s Request for Special Permission to Appeal from the Administrative Law Judge’s order granting, in part, the Unions’ petition to revoke subpoenas duces tecum.

Philander Smith College (15-CA-278071) Little Rock, AR, October 19, 2022.

Concurring in part, Member Ring advised the Board to proceed with caution before asserting jurisdiction over entities raising a claim of exemption under NLRB v. Catholic Bishop of Chicago, 440 U.S. 490 (1979), but agreed with the majority that, under extant law, lack of jurisdiction does not provide a basis for revoking an investigative subpoena. Charge filed by an individual. Members Ring, Wilcox, and Prouty participated.
