Chapter Summary

First, on behalf of Joel's parents, and those of his classmates, angered by what had happened to their children , the suit challenged the legality of: (a) the arrest of the children, (b) that they had been held in detention with adults, and (c) the suspension of the constitutional protection of prompt access to habeas corpus. Second, on behalf of Joel's father, and two other members of Congress up for reelection from the Justice Party, the organization asserted that the executive order to postpone the elections was an undue interference with their right to stand for election as well as to cast their votes. Third, on behalf of the five unions that had organized the dockworker's strike and their members, the organization alleged that the executive action to break the strike effectively gutted the unions' right to participate in collective bargaining and represent the interests of their members.
