Judge Strikes Down Wisconsin Law Limiting Union Rights
A Wisconsin judge has struck down the law favored by Republican Governor Scott Walker that ended collective bargaining rights.
Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled Friday that the law violates both the state and U.S. Constitution and is null and void. The ruling comes after a lawsuit brought by the Madison teachers union and a union for Milwaukee city employees.
Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says he is confident the decision will be overturned on appeal.
