Wisconsin Labor Law Challenge by County Official Is Dismissed

A Wisconsin county official was ruled ineligible to sue to block a state law stripping government employee unions of most of their collective bargaining power.

Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and County Board Chairman Scott McDonell lack standing to challenge the law on constitutional grounds in their official capacities, Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi ruled yesterday. Falk and McDonell may be able to sue as individuals, Sumi said.
