Following are some of the major opinions and dissents authored by Chief Justice William Rehnquist
Garcia v. San Antonio Metropolitan Transit Authority
Decided Feb. 19, 1985
In a dissent in Garcia, Rehnquist correctly forecast that states’ rights would rise again. The majority ruled that the federal Fair Labor Standards Act’s minimum wage and overtime pay requirements applied to the San Antonio public transportation system. Rehnquist, in a one paragraph dissent, said, “I think it incumbent on those of us in dissent to spell out further the fine points of a principle that will, I am confident, in time again command the support of a majority of this Court.”
