Scott Walker Set Back On Heels As Dane County Judge Rules Act 10 On Collective Bargaining Unconstitutional–Violates The Equal Protection Clause By Creating Separate Classes Of Workers Who Are Treated Differently And Unequally


Take this Scott Walker!

Let us unite and work like hell to drive these conservative douches from office.

A Wisconsin judge on Friday ruled as unconstitutional major portions of the controversial law which restricted the collective bargaining rights of some public employees.

Dane County Circuit Judge Juan B. Colas ruled in favor of a challenge brought by two labor unions, finding several aspects of the law to be in conflict with state and U.S. constitutions.

Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled that the law violates both the state and U.S. Constitution and is null and void.

In his 27-page ruling, the judge said sections of the law “single out and encumber the rights of those employees who choose union membership and representation solely because of that association and therefore infringe upon the rights of free speech and association guaranteed by both the Wisconsin and United States Constitutions.”

Colas also said the law violates the equal protection clause by creating separate classes of workers who are treated differently and unequally.

The ruling applies to all local public workers affected by the law, including teachers and city and county government employees, but not those who work for the state. They were not a party to the lawsuit, which was brought by a Madison teachers union and a Milwaukee public workers union.

  1. “Conservative douches” ? Really Greg , name calling is beneath you… and before you get too excited, Blogging Blue said today that the Supreme Court was almost sure to overturn Judge Colas on appeal. Makes sense seeing as how the Governor was right in taking the action he did.

    smokey3.one day your rights in one way or another will be taken away. it’s only a matter of time. and you will want everyone to band together to get your rights back. it’s really a sad day when workers hate workers ONLY BECAUSE THEY ARE DOING THE SAME THING YOU ARE….WORKING TO SUPPORT THEIR FAMILY AND MAYBE BEABLE TO SEND THEIR KIDS TO SCHOOL. ALSO WALKER HAS MADE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE TO BECOME TEACHERS. IF YOU WORK IN A DAY CARE YOU ARE QUAILIFIED TO BE A TEACHER. LOOK UP THE STUFF HE PASSED AND READ IT. READ EVERYTHING YOU MAY FIND YOU ARE WRONG ON SOME THINGS. MOSTLY BECAUSE OF JEALOUSY THEY HAVE SOMETHING YOU DON’T SO YOU DON’T WANT THEM TO HAVE IT EITHER.

  3. windy33 I will fight for anyone’s “Rights”, and I agree that it’s a sad day when workers hate workers, or anyone else for that mater. Rights were not at issue…… Hate is a terrible thing, makes people call each other names, holler at others – tho I guess a lot of that would be classified as anger – justified or not – but not necessary in any case… I’m not working to support my family and/or send them to school, I retired years ago after working for over 50 years – paid my taxes every year and continue to do so… Have no kids but I have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to various school districts over the years to pay for others peoples kid education, without complaint I might add. It will be a comfort to you I’m sure, that I acknowledge without argument that I have been wrong about a lot of things in my lifetime, if you don’t make mistakes you aren’t doing anything… I must also tell you that I am not jealous of any of those folks, nor would I have any reason to be. I see the entire matter as an economic issue, however a small one when compared to the Federal government today. I just think that Governor Walker did what he could do, to the best of his ability, to best serve the citizens of the state of Wisconsin… and think it’s important that he was elected twice to do the job… that says a lot in my estimation. Hope you didn’t use all your CAPS to try and send me some kind of a message, however I find no logic in your “Argument” or your capital letters. I hope after reading this far you will realize that you wasted a considerable amount of hate or anger or whatever, ‘ cause I’m not impressed. I’s suggest you take a deep breathe, give some thought as to why you reacted the way you did…. and above all… have a good weekend. God loves you!

  4. The Court just might pass on this until after Walker is indicted by the Grand Jury hearing testimony from 16 former associates granted immunity.

    The disgraced Supreme Court let stand the injunction against Voter I.D. laws for this year’s elections. I believe that the Court is trying to maintain a low profile and try to regain a tiny bit of respect after embarrassing itself by complying with Scott Fitzgerald’s demand for an immediate ruling, to head off massive protests last June if he tried to add the provisions to the state budget bill.

    What was that other embarrassing matter from last year? A Supreme Court Justice physically assaulted a fellow Justice, a female Justice, a smaller Justice over the above matter, that was it.

    Not only that but that same Justice openly admitted he engaged in the same electioneering Walker is trouble for, but conveniently waited until the Statute of Limitations expired to come clean.
