Ruling On The Judge

The Durkee company's parent corporation, Glidden Company, objected to the fact that Judge Madden had sat in on the case. They claimed that his participation made the circuit court's ruling invalid, and they asked the Supreme Court to consider their case on that basis.

The Court did agree to hear the case, but only the part that concerned Judge Madden. From the outset, they refused to rule on the seniority issue. If they found that Judge Madden should not have been involved, the case would go back for another hearing to the circuit court. If they found that Judge Madden's participation had been constitutional, the circuit court decision would stand.
