On my reading, the Court of Appeals' decision and, even more clearly, the Board's decision here for review, were based solely on 7, not on the First Amendment; and this Court ought initially consider the statutory question without reference to the First Amendment - the question on which the Court remands. Lloyd v.

Soon thereafter this Court decided Lloyd Corp. v. Tanner, , and Central Hardware Co. v. NLRB, That the Administrative Law Judge supported his "realistic view of the facts" by referring to this Court's "factual view" of the Logan Valley case surely cannot be said to alter the judge's explicitly stated legal theory, which was a statutory one.

Members of a striking union had picketed in front of their employer Butler Shoe Co.'s  retail store inside a mall owned by Scott Hudgens.

SUMMARY OF ARGUMENT The offensive speech in this case falls squarely within the bounds of First Amendment protected speech. The very question in these cases is whether, and under what circumstances, the First Amendment has any application at all.

His disagreement with the Court's reasoning was total: The Court in its Lloyd opinion did not say that it was overruling the Logan Valley decision.

This result, although not the optimal one in my view, Lloyd Corp. v.

Footnote 6 See id., at 584.
