TACOMA, Wash. - A Washington federal judge on Aug. 13 dismissed a National Labor Relations Board regional director's petition for preliminary injunctive relief against an employer accused of violating the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), finding that the regional director lacked authority to file the underlying complaints because the NLRB lacked a quorum at the time (Ronald K. Hooks, et al. v. Kitsap Tenant Support Services, Inc., No. 13-5470, W.D. Wash.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 114320).
