JUDGE TRIES TO REIGN IN FASCISTS IN WISCONSIN
A Wisconsin judge has blocked Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-union law from taking effect for the second time this month. On Tuesday, Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi reissued a temporary restraining order blocking the measure’s implementation. Sumi had earlier ruled Republican lawmakers were likely in violation of state open meeting laws when they pushed the legislation through. Despite the initial ruling, Republicans and some state officials have claimed the measure has taken effect. The state’s Supreme Court is expected to rule on whether the measure has become law and on whether it can be appealed.
