Wisconsin court repeats terms of injunction clearly
From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
For the second time in less than two weeks, a Dane County judge Tuesday issued an order blocking the implementation of Gov. Scott Walker's plan to curb collective bargaining for public workers.The response from the Republicans was delivered by an Assistant Attorney General.
Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi said that her original restraining order issued earlier this month was clear in saying no steps should be take to advance the law. The GOP governor's administration did so after the bill was published Friday by a state agency not named in Sumi's earlier temporary restraining order.
"Further implementation of the act is enjoined," Sumi said.
"Apparently that language was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was the further implementation of Act 10 was enjoined. That is what I now want to make crystal clear."
She warned that those who violate her order could face court sanctions.
But outside the courtroom, Assistant Attorney General Steven Means said the legislation "absolutely" is still in effect.In effect he said, Fuck you judge. Time for Her Honor to start throwing some folks in jail for contempt.
