The Supreme Court hears oral arguments Wednesday in what labor experts are calling the biggest case in decades, Unite Here Local 355 v. Mulhall. At stake is a complaint filed by a Florida racetrack employee saying an agreement between the workers union and his employer violates a federal anti-bribery statute. 

Sports Authority stores in Chicago have gotten hit by “flash robs” — teams of thieves yanking whole racks of Starter jackets out the door at top speed. What’s new here is the coordinated approach to this kind of in-your-face shoplifting — and the highly-specific shopping list. So, what can stores do to protect themselves?
