Court Blocks Wisconsin Anti-Union Law

The first challenge against Scott Walker’s anti-union bill is being considered and a temporary restraining order barring the law from being implemented has been issued.  All eyes will be on Wisconsin in the coming days and weeks as other states have similar bills awaiting votes.

Dane Country Judge Maryann Sumi imposed the restraining order on the basis that a lawsuit against the law had a high likelihood of prevailing.

The lawsuit filed by the Dane County district attorney took up the argument of some of the new law’s opponents that the Republican-led state legislature violated Wisconsin’s open-meetings act.
