    Judge voids Wisconsin collective bargaining law

    Wisconsin's law taking away nearly all collective bargaining rights from most public workers was struck down Thursday by a circuit court judge but the ruling will not be the final say in the union fight that brought tens of thousands of protesters to the Capitol earlier this year.

    The state Supreme Court has scheduled arguments for June 6 to decide whether it will take the case. Republicans who control the Legislature also could pass the law a second time to avoid the open meeting violations that led to the judge's voiding the law Thursday.

    This "judge" has done nothing except prolong the inevitable. She had to come out with a ruling now because there is a judicial review of her first decision, and she is trying to do a pre-emptive strike.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    She also publicly stated her opinion before hearing the case.

    Fail.

    Hmmm.....

    WisPolitics.com: Rep. Kramer, Sen. Vukmir: Legislators propose increasing court access

    Madison, WI – Today, Representative Bill Kramer (R-Waukesha) and Senator Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa) introduced Assembly Bill 156, legislation that will increase access to the courts for all residents of the state and decentralize the judiciary, giving wider latitude for plaintiffs to seek justice against the State of Wisconsin.

    Current law requires cases against the state to be filed in Dane County. This legislation allows the plaintiff to file an action in any county court. The legislation also requires that appeals be heard in an appellate district that does not contain the court which issued the judgment or order.

    Justice Department asks state Supreme Court to vacate collective bargaining ruling - JSOnline


    State DOJ asks Supreme Court to vacate ruling
    Madison - The state Department of Justice asked the state Supreme Court on Friday to immediately vacate a judge's decision that voided a plan by Gov. Scott Walker to greatly limit collective bargaining for public workers.

    In its filing, the department said Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi made so many errors in a ruling Thursday that the Supreme Court should throw out her decision even before it hears oral arguments in the case June 6.

    "These errors amount to a fundamental denial of due process and reveal the extent to which the circuit court was willing to exceed its jurisdiction in order to invalidate a politically controversial act of the Legislature," wrote Deputy Attorney General Kevin St. John.

    Judge Suni was asked the day before her decision to recuse herself from the case because of her stated and known bias. The Stat Justice Department concluded that she was unable to be impartial. I'd say she proved them correct.
