Federal court upholds Wisconsin’s At 10 ‘in its entirety’
Wisconsin Reporter – M. D. Kittle – 1/18/2013

MADISON – A federal appeals court on Friday upheld Act 10, Wisconsin’s controversial reform law that guts collective bargaining for most public employees in the state.

The decision strikes a blow to public-sector unions that gained a temporary victory in September, when a Dane County Circuit Court Judge ruled parts of the law unconstitutional.

Dane County Circuit Court Judge Juan Colas’ ruling last year is not affected by the decision and will be heard by the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.

“While the decision today upholds Act 10 in its entirety, an injunction is still in place as a result of the Judge Colas decision regarding Act 10; however the decision handed down today is a compelling argument for that injunction either to be lifted or stayed,” wrote Dana Brueck, spokeswoman for the state Department of Justice.
