Wisconsin’s High Court Asked by Official to Toss Union Law Case

Wisconsin’s Supreme Court was asked by state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to throw out a lower-court case in which a judge barred enforcement of a law limiting public workers’ ability to engage in collective bargaining.

Van Hollen filed his petition with the state’s high court yesterday, saying he isn’t appealing Dane County Circuit Court Judge Maryann Sumi March 18 restraining order. Acting instead on behalf of Mike Huebsch, the secretary of the state’s Department of Administration, the attorney general is asking the Supreme Court to take jurisdiction over the matter and dismiss it.
