US v. Burhoe, 15-1542

Sustaining the conviction of union members for violations of a law prohibiting persons with certain criminal convictions from serving in certain positions within a labor organization within thirteen years after their term of imprisonment ends, but vacating convictions for extortion of a nonunion company and remanding for a new jury trial because the jury instructions allowed the jury to convict simply upon finding that work contracted for with union members was unwanted rather than the result of extortion.
