MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and his fellow Republicans face a new hurdle in their campaign to curb public-sector unions' power.
So far, Republicans have managed one win after another. They've overcome a filibuster, massive protests, Senate Democrats fleeing the state and even a judge's order blocking the secretary of state from publishing the law.
But now they face another roadblock. Judge Maryann Sumi re-issued her order on Tuesday — and this time she has warned that anyone who violates it will face sanctions.
Still, the matter is far from settled. It's likely the law's legitimacy will be decided by the state Supreme Court.
