Breaking: Judge Delays WI Union Law

 This is not to be unexpected but it's bad news nonetheless. Unfortunately, a Wisconsin judge has ruled that the public employee union law passed earlier this month in Wisconsin is not in effect.

More on this outrage from Channel 3000:

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi made the amended ruling at 8:15 a.m. She has already issued an emergency order blocking Wisconsin's secretary of state from publishing the law. Sumi called a hearing Tuesday to weigh District Attorney Ismael Ozanne's lawsuit alleging Republican legislative leaders violated Wisconsin's open meetings law during debate on the proposal.
Sumi re-issued her order on Tuesday -- and this time she has warned that anyone who violates it will face sanctions. She amended the ruling on Thursday to read, "Further, based on the briefs of counsel, the uncontroverted testimony, and the evidence received at the March 29 evidentiary hearing, it is hereby declared that 2011 Wisconsin Act 10 has not been published ..."

What a crook. Hey, Maryann, how much is the SEIU paying you?
