Judge To Rule On Collective Bargaining

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin judge says she'll decide on Friday whether to issue an emergency order blocking publication of the state's new collective bargaining law.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne (oh - zaan') filed a lawsuit on Wednesday accusing Republican legislative leaders of violating Wisconsin's open meetings law during the rushed run-up to a Senate vote on the measure last week. He wants a judge to block publication of the law so the case can be heard before the measure takes effect.

Judge Maryann Sumi had originally scheduled a hearing for Thursday morning, but pushed it back to Friday. Ozanne says he has as many as 20 witnesses lined up.
