Supreme Court History: Lochner v New York (1905)

With California’s bill regulating the gig economy out of existence and interfering with the Constitutional protected freedom of contract hurting the very people it was designed to help, and this same regulation being considered by several other states as well as on the national level it’s fitting to discuss a case that was argued on this date before the Supreme Court in 1905 “Lochner v New York”.
