Ryan Funk Comments on Discovery in 10(j) Proceedings With Bloomberg Law

In “Starbucks’ Discovery Fights Are Stalling Labor Injunction Cases,” Bloomberg Law turned to labor and employment partner Ryan Funk for his commentary on discovery disputes in recent 10 (j) cases and how the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) can address discovery proceedings.

Those documents are due the day of the hearing before an administrative law judge, which gives attorneys little time to review the material before the start of a trial, he added.
