Argued March 1, 1960
Decided June 6, 1960
363 U.S. 144
Section 8 of the New York Waterfront Commission Act of 1953 in effect disqualifies from holding office in any waterfront labor organization any person who has been convicted of a felony and has not subsequently been pardoned or had his disability removed by a certificate of good conduct from the Board of Parole.
Held: this section does not violate the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution by conflicting invalidly with the National Labor Relations Act or the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959; it does not violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment; and it is not an ex post facto law or bill of attainder forbidden by Article I, § 10 of the Constitution. Pp. 363 U. S. 144-161.
5 N.Y.2d 236, 157 N.E.2d 165, affirmed.
