Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 454 F.2d 1170 (5th Cir. 1971) Dec. 10, 1971

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Before WISDOM, COLEMAN, and SIMPSON, Circuit Judges.


The judgment of the district court, 337 F. Supp. 303 is affirmed. See Local Rule 21.1  That court's finding that the termination of Burch's membership was arbitrary and discriminatory is not clearly erroneous. Moreover, the district court properly construed the "appropriate relief" provision of the Landrum-Griffin Act to permit the award of attorney's fees in this case. 29 U.S.C. § 412; Gartner v. Soloner, 3 Cir. 1967, 384 F.2d 348, cert. den'd 390 U.S. 1040, 88 S. Ct. 1633, 20 L. Ed. 2d 302.
