MADISON (PRESS RELEASE)--Department of Justice communications officer Bill Cosh released the following statement about Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi's ruling that the new collective bargaining law is not in effect.
"We have raised numerous objections to the court when permitted to do so, and we will continue to make objections known to the court. Today's order is issued over our objections, and we do not believe that it is proper. But it is the court's order and we understand that DOA will abide by that order. Ultimately, we expect a higher court will need to weigh in on the fundamental issues of constitutional law and judicial power that these proceedings have put to the test."
