Ruling stems from a lawsuit claiming that GOP lawmakers violated open meeting rules.
Updated On: Mar 28, 2011

— A Wisconsin judge on Friday issued a temporary restraining order blocking the new state law that curbs collective bargaining rights for most public employees.

The decision, issued by Judge Maryann Sumi of the Dane County Circuit Court in Madison, temporarily bars the Wisconsin secretary of state from publishing the law, which would limit bargaining to matters of wages. The fight over the law has drawn tens of thousands of demonstrators to the state Capitol, and the issue has become a focus of debate in numerous statehouses.

Publication of the law — a procedural requirement needed before it can take effect — had been expected next week. But Sumi's ruling could delay that until at least later in the month, when she plans to hold a full hearing on a lawsuit that accuses Republican lawmakers of violating the Wisconsin open meeting requirements to push through the bill. State officials said they were pursuing an appeal of the restraining order.

Reaction to the ruling offered more evidence that the rift over collective bargaining has not faded since Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, signed the law a week ago. Democrats and union leaders said the decision would be the first of many that would ultimately be the policy's undoing.

"Republicans have engaged in extraordinary procedural shenanigans to try to advance their assault on the rights of Wisconsin's middle-class and working families," said Mark Miller, a Democratic leader in the state Senate.

The decision raised the prospect that Wisconsin's legislators might be forced to take up the bill again, but Republicans suggested that it was merely a blip that was likely to be overturned.

"We highly doubt a Dane County judge has the authority to tell the Legislature how to carry out its constitutional duty," Sen. Scott Fitzgerald and Rep. Jeff Fitzgerald, who are brothers as well as Republican leaders, said in a statement.
