Wisconsin AG asks for stay in union law ruling


Wisconsin's attorney general has asked a judge to put on hold his decision to repeal major parts of Gov. Scott Walker's law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers.

J.B. Van Hollen filed the request Tuesday.

Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled Friday that Walker's law is unconstitutional as applied to school and local government employees.

His ruling did not affect state workers or those at the University of Wisconsin System.

Attorney Lester Pines represents the Madison teachers' union that brought the lawsuit.

Pines says he will vigorously oppose Van Hollen's request to put the ruling on hold.
