The case deals with violations of union members rights in the Pacific Northwest by the UBC. There are a couple parallels to the case against MikeMcCarron.
Same old UBC shenanigans in a different region.

During Doug McCarron's tenure (eighteen years) as General President of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, the UBC has filed and prosecuted numerous 14D charges against officers and members of our union. In every case, the UBC's trial committee found the union member guilty and kicked those members out of our union.
Sound familiar. Mike McCarron did not receive a fair trial over the trumped up charges filed against him. Even with a defense that exonerated him from all of those ridiculous charges, the trial committee found Mike guilty, and the UBC kicked him out of the Union.
Read below to understand how the UBC controls the trial process.

Yesterday, the federal district court judge denied my request for an TRO.
The denial was issued without decision and not based on the merits of the case. This was an expected result. Under federal law trusteeships are presumed valid, even when they are not and are very hard to attack. Nonetheless, I felt I had to take a shot and to get my side of the story out through court declarations. Over 14,000 people have seen my declarations. This is just one battle in a war that is far from over.
I thank you for your support and well wishes.
Sincerely, Mike McCarron
Please read the TRO Application and more importantly the Supporting Declarations by Mike McCarron, Michael Olds, Lindsey Maldoon and Kathy McCarron, which explain the situation in its entirety.
Attention Members and Supporters: Don't miss this exchange between Mike and Doug on the floor of Local 1506 on 9.20.2013.
I was just informed that I was found guilty on all charges by the UBC Kangaroo Court.
At trial, I introduced 630 pages of documents and had nine witnesses testify on my behalf. In spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary of the charges, Frank Spencer, Jim Smith and Dave Tharpe did what they were told by my loving brother, dictator Doug. Shame on all of you! Shame also on Mike Draper, Justin (the minister) Weidner, and Doug’s director of real estate, Randy Sowell.
I would also like to thank the behind the scenes henchmen for the three documented instances of witness tampering and intimidation, as well as the introduction of falsified documents.
The internal UBC 14(D) charges filed against Mike McCarron and the Emergency Supervision of the Southwest Regional Council are the direct result of a personal vendetta by General President Doug McCarron against his brother Mike.
