Another group sues over Act 10


Madison (WKOW) - Another group is suing the state over Act 10. The Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association is challenging the law's constitutionality.

The group represents Wisconsin State Patrol Troopers, UW Police Officers and Wisconsin State Capitol Police.

Its lawsuit is similar to the action brought by Madison teachers and Milwaukee city workers. A judge in that case overturned major portions of the law that affect school employees and local government workers, but not state employees like members of the WLEA.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has appealed that ruling.
