Freedom Foundation Statement on Oregon Legislative Union Case

By Freedom Foundation,

Today, Freedom Foundation Northwest Director Jason Dudash released the following statement in reaction to the Oregon Court of Appeals decision.

“Today’s decision from the Court of Appeals is laughable.”

“The law surrounding the merits of this case is plainly in our favor, which is why the court had to use a new theory of standing – never before applied in Oregon law – to be able to rule against us.”

“Let’s not forget, the constitutional arguments we are making were originally made by the attorney general herself. Now those same attorneys are fighting against the arguments they originally made. Laughable really is the only word that comes to mind.”

“We very much look forward to appealing this poorly reasoned decision.”
