Posted on 09/14/2012 3:05:15 PM PDT by Hunton Peck
A Wisconsin judge has struck down the state law championed by Gov. Scott Walker that effectively ended collective bargaining rights for most public workers.
Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled Friday that the law violates both the state and U.S. Constitution and is null...
It was not clear if the ruling means the law is immediately suspended.

I sense a civil war brewing.
Because you folks who want governors to tell courts they are going to just ignore their rulings, don’t know what the hell you are talking about.
Other than that, it’s a plausible approach.
That's funny, considering the fact that the Republican nominee is a hardcore judicial supremacist, whose record of appointments to the bench in Massachusetts was uniformly liberal.
I sincerely doubt the unions will be found to have a federal Constitutional right to do whatever they want in Wisconsin, regardless of the legilature, governor, or voters.
I’ve been around lots of state judges and yeah, their level of political corruption, and just plain corruption, can be disgusting.
In fact I’ve seen this infect federal courts which used to be a cut above.
Hey Waspman, here we are again, with a new war, but a justifiable battle that needs to be waged..
This may be a war that these cretins wish they hadn’t started, AGAIN.. This time we should go for the jugular, and challenge the legality of public unions as a concept..
If an employee of the people can lobby, and intimidate their employer with the threat of paralyzing the needed service, where is the justification for having the service be a public run enterprise.. Just privatize the entire project..
Render government employees and Unions unneeded and therefore, unnecessary..
That is funny...considering that once again you are lying 3rd party bot
Truth is, no matter how bad Romney's court nominations are (and let's just assume they'll suck), they are going to be better than Obama's. And the odds are Willard will use court nominations much like past presidents and, at least at the circuit and appeals level, throw bones to the base and nominate decent candidates.
Were it 4-3 liberal in the Wisconsin Supreme Court, this ridiculous Dane county judge's ruling would probably stand. Thankfully in this particular case, the court judges are elected by the people and the previous Democrat governor and legislature didn't get to shape it.
Saying all that, would I prefer your judicial picks to Romney's? Sure, you might nominate some great conservative jurists. I'd also prefer my neighbor's court nominees to Romney's - and my uncles, and my Dad's, etc. The problem is none of you won the GOP nomination for President, so none of you have even the slightest chance of being elected President. So in the real world, given a choice between the 2 candidates that can actually win, Romney is the best option where court nominations are concerned. And, in general, Republicans are almost always going to appoint better judges than Democrats.

Wisconsin — Dane Co. Judge strikes down Walker collective bargaining law — it’s WAR
FReep mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
The only reason I can’t win is because of the folks like yourself who say you’re conservatives but insist on supporting a flaming liberal.
If you all turned around tomorrow I’d win easily.
We don’t even need a majority to prevail. All we need is a plurality of one vote in each state.
I would bet a billion dollars that the WIS supreme court ALREADY heard this case. Didn’t they?
You think that's making your case? LOL...
Remember, even the nine Republicans were Romney Republicans.
So, you've made my point. Thanks.
Knock it off Eternal, you’re not going to be President. These are deadly serious days and we don’t have time for silly vanity campaigns that will never amount to anything.
You don’t like your lies being pointed out, you can stop lying. Otherwise, get use to it.
I hear ya. But are getting close to where elections will no longer become winnable anyway. With a mature leftist MSM propaganda machine, 47% not paying taxes, illegals and dead voters we are screwed.
At some point our role will change from a conservative voting block to a counter-revolutionary resistance focused on mucking up the machine
I could well be wrong, but I believe the case decided by the WSC had to do with procedural issues surrounding Act 10’s passage by the legislature, not with the substance of the law.
I’ve been used to your defense of liberal Republicans for a long time.
Walker is on Mark Levin now. He is going to appeal
Chicago just settled the teacher’s strike. I wonder who took who to the cleaners. As Wisconsin and Indiana continue to move away from union political control Illinois will pay dearly.
