Nursing home asks US Supreme Court to intervene

A nursing home company based in Parsippany, N.J., has asked US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to overturn an appeals court’s order rejecting a delay in reinstating striking Connecticut workers. HealthBridge Management said Monday that a federal court’s Jan. 25 decision striking down three appointees by President Obama to the National Labor Relations Board calls into question the labor board’s decisions. In December, a federal judge in Hartford approved an injunction requested by the labor board ordering the company to reinstate 600 striking workers at five nursing homes. A federal appeals court in New York rejected HealthBridge’s request last week to delay that order.
