Wis. asks state Supreme Court to take union case


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's administration is asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the law that would take away nearly all collective bargaining rights from public workers.

The filing made Thursday also asks the Supreme Court to remove a judge's order blocking enactment of the law that was signed by Walker on March 11.

The state Justice Department asks on behalf of Walker's Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch that any further action by the Dane County circuit court be put on hold while the Supreme Court reviews the case.

The circuit court last week put the case on hold indefinitely while it considers whether the open meetings law was violated in the process of passing it.
