The rulers of FitzWalkerstan (a break-away totalitarian state formerly known as "Wisconsin") have announced they will begin implimenting the new union-busting law, in spite of a standing court order blocking them from doing so. Field Marshall Fitz was seen grinning, as he picked the shattered bones of Soveregn Law and Legal Precident out of the treads of his panzerwagen with the point of his dagger.

The good citizens fighting for freedom in FitzWlkerstan better hurry up with those recall efforts, before the lawless regime starts thinking about ways to make the recalls harder... Ooops, too late!

FARK.com: (6020164) Wisconsin GOP leader Scott Fitzgerald says a change might be needed to the current recall laws to ensure any recall effort against Republican senators will fail

It'll be interesting to see what happens if Walker starts acting on that law and the court later overrules it as invalid. And I wonder if he's restrained by any statutes that legally prevent this kind of action under pending decisions?

A newly seated governor starting out by breaking the law and ignoring his own state court?

Fascinating...

There is a court ordered stay on the union busting bill while there is no court ordered stay on the health care reform bill. Some people here need to learn a little about the basics of our legal system.

Really ???

The Temporary Restraining Order for the bill was issued against the Secreatry of State of Wisconsin, the petitioner requesting the TRO.

Wisoncin state law "requires the Legislative Reference Bureau to publish every act within 10 working days after its date of enactment." An act separate from the above Sec State.
Quote:
"Today the administration was notified that the LRB published the budget-repair bill as required by law," said a statement from Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch. "The administration will carry out the law as required."

Alright, plwhit, I will play ball with you. Please tell us which official court ordered stay the administration supposedly has broken?

BTW I find your contempt for the rule of law disturbing but shockingly common among the right wing.
