Bank National Ass’n v. Kroske

Whether the National Bank Act’s grant to national banks of the power to dismiss their officers “at pleasure,” 12 U.S.C. Sec. 24, fails to preempt a state employment age discrimination law; and, whether a presumption against preemption permits state laws to apply to national banks despite the longstanding preemptive force of the National Bank Act.

Brian Wolfman of Public Citizen was co-counsel for the respondent at the cert stage, and the Supreme Cout denied cert.
