MADISON -- A Dane County judge struck down Wisconsin's right-to-work law Friday afternoon, the Associated Press reported.We've seen this before. Act 10, which defanged public employee unions in Wisconsin and caused the spasms of protest that engulfed the state in 2011, got a similar treatment from a judge in Dane County. On appeal, the ruling was overturned. It will happen again in this case.
The controversial law, championed by Governor Scott Walker, was enacted just over a year ago , in March of 2015.
Attorney General Brad Schimel has already said he will file an appeal on the judge's ruling.
The point of these suits isn't to win the case. It's to win the headlines. A representative screenshot from ABC News:
|A "Court" did this? Wow, this really must mean something!|
