Statutory Intepretation and the Political Process: A Comment on Sinclair v. Atkinson (with Lee A. Albert), 72 Yale Law Journal 1547 (1963)


Sinclair Refining Co. v. Atkinson is a case well worth the attention of all students of the legal process. The case, involving the intersection of two important federal labor statutes, is likely to commend itself to the close attention of the labor law specialist. Predictably, however, it will put off the casual reader, and perhaps trouble, but never fully engage, those persons who are more professionally committed to exploring the pages of the United States Reports. This comment has no more ambitious aim than to rescue Sinclair from so humble a destiny.
