Wisconsin judge *again* blocks anti-union law
But the governor and his attorney general are ignoring the judge's order and still acting as if the law is active. It's brazen and ridiculous the way these politicians are acting.
“Further implementation of the act is enjoined,” said Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi.
Sumi noted her original restraining order issued earlier this month was clear in saying that the state should not proceed with implementing the law. The Walker administration did so after the bill was published Friday by a state agency not included in Sumi’s earlier temporary restraining order.
“Apparently that language was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was the further implementation of Act 10 was enjoined. That is what I now want to make crystal clear,” she said.
But minutes later, outside the court room, Assistant Attorney General Steven Means said the legislation “absolutely” is still in effect.
Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) balked at that statement.
“It’s just startling that the attorney general believes you should not follow court orders anymore,” he said.
