CONFIRMED! Judges say "No" to collective bargaining

Postby Peanutbutter » Sat Jul 07, 2012 8:34 am

The state Supreme Court won't reconsider a lawsuit challenging Gov. Scott Walker's collective bargaining law.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne argued Republicans violated the open meetings law during debate on the measure. The Supreme Court ruled in June 2011 the law stands.

Ozanne in December asked the court to reconsider the case.

I wonder if we'll see more drum banging and yelling at the capitol because of this ruling. Or have the union bosses and Madison liberals finally learned that the rest of the state don't agree with their childish antics?

The vote was a three-three tie.

Given the problems you've had with doing so in the past, we're all so proud that you're finally able to follow a link and read the article.

For extra credit can you explain how the vote being a tie changes anything?

So the Supreme Court is a representative body now?

It didn't change anything. It just keep the status quo.

I have no idea what point you're trying to make, but the members of the Supreme Court are directly chosen by the people of Wisconsin.
