Judge dismisses one of three lawsuits on Wisconsin law
One down, two to go.The Wisconsin judge who blocked the implementation of the state law limiting collective bargaining by public workers threw out one of the three lawsuits on Thursday challenging the controversial measure.
The suit, which claimed the law's passage violated the state's constitution, was filed by Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and County Board Chair Scott McDonell.
Dane County Circuit Court Judge Maryann Sumi said the county officials lacked standing to assert constitutional claims. She said they could refile their suit as private citizens.
