Madison, Wis. — A Wisconsin judge says she's keeping in place her restraining order preventing a law stripping most public workers of most of their collective bargaining rights from going into effect while she considers whether the state open meetings law was broken in the process of passing the law.
Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi took testimony on the issue Friday but did not make a decision on the open meetings law question.
Sumi dealt the law's supporters a blow Thursday by ruling that it had not gone into effect last week as Republicans claimed, and her decision Friday was another setback for them. Gov. Scott Walker's administration had been working to implement the law.
It's likely that Sumi's eventual decision will be appealed.
