Dane Co. judge rules on Act 10 injunction


MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County Judge Juan Colas handed down another ruling regarding Wisconsin's collective bargaining law.

Last year, Colas ruled the restrictions in Act 10 are unconstitutional as they pertained to school and city workers in Madison and Milwaukee.

An attorney for those employee unions says Governor Scott Walker's administration has been moving forward to implement portions of the law Colas struck down. In April, they asked the judge for an injunction making it clear that work must stop.

In a ruling on Tuesday, Colas said the state can't enforce the restrictions against anyone, but he refused to issue the injunction, saying Madison and Milwaukee workers haven't been hurt by the law.
