The Wisconsin Supreme Court has canceled oral arguments in the Act 10 collective-bargaining case that had been scheduled for Oct. 23. Court records show that the state Justice Department asked for a new date for the appearance before the seven justices; no reason was given for the request. The challenge to Act 10, which all but eliminated collective bargaining for most public employees, was filed by Madison's teachers union and City of Milwaukee workers' union. No new date was set for oral arguments.
This makes me interested as to why it happened. I don't claim to be a State Supreme Court expert, so I can't really tell how normal this is, but it sure makes those of us who are teacher and members of unions interested as to how long the temporary stay of the order lasts.
