Attorney general to seek stay in union case soon

Wisconsin's Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen plans to act quickly in seeking a stay in a court decision that overturns the law repealing most collective bargaining for local government and school district employees.

Van Hollen's spokeswoman Dana Brueck said Monday that Van Hollen early this week will seek the court's permission to keep enforcing the law while legal appeals are pending. She had no more specific information on timing.

Van Hollen promised on Saturday to seek the stay. The decision by Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas came late Friday afternoon.

The ruling overturns the 2011 law for city, municipal and school district employees. The law remains in effect for state workers and those in the University of Wisconsin System.
