MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A judge says she will issue a decision in a day or two about whether to dismiss a lawsuit challenging Gov. Scott Walker's divisive collective bargaining law.
Wisconsin Department of Justice attorneys argued Wednesday that the lawsuit by Democratic Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk should not be allowed to move forward because it is not ripe given that the law has yet to take effect.
Falk alleges that Republican lawmakers illegally convened a meeting to amend the plan on two hours' notice. She also contends the state Senate lacked enough members to pass the proposal after minority Democrats fled to Illinois.
The same judge earlier this month issued an order putting the law's enactment on hold while she considered whether the open meetings law was violated.
