Scott Walker suffers blow in court

We can only hope Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s political life has become a little more difficult after a judge struck down his infamous collective bargaining law.

The law would have taken collective bargaining rights away from public workers in the state. So controversial, the legislation helped pave the way for a recall election, in which Unions and progressives tried to remove the governor from office.

That effort failed.

The judge in this case ruled that the collective bargaining ban violated both the state and US Constitution, making it null and void.

Vowing to appeal, Walker says the fight is not over. Unions have declared victory for now, though the governor has the option to ask a judge to keep the law in effect while both sides continue to wrangle in court.
