Apparently another judge restrained a number of the laws passed during last December’s lame duck sessions…so now Assembly Speaker Robin Vos will have to expand his use of expensive private law firms to appeal this ruling.
A Dane County judge threw out parts of lame-duck laws Tuesday, dealing a second blow in less than a week to measures Republicans passed in December to curb the powers of two of Wisconsin’s top Democrats.
The ruling strengthens Democrats’ position, at least for now, because Republicans would need to get two orders from appeals courts to put the laws back in place.
Already one appeal has been filed and an appeal in the latest case is in the works.
Can we actually start working on the budget and some policy now?
