    Default Judge tells Scott Walker to follow her rulings or else

    Dane County, Wisconsin Judge Maryann Sumi issued a stern warning to out-of-control governor Scott Walker and the lemming-like Republicans who follow him: Obey the court or their a$$ is grass.
    Sumi obviously didn’t like Walker’s attempt to circumvent her injunction blocking implementation of his efforts to strip the state’s public employee unions of collective bargaining rights so she clarified her position Tuesday in a stinging rebuke of the governor and the Legislative Reference Bureau, which published the law last Friday and gave Walker an excuse to try and implement in violation of the court ruling.
    Sumi lashed out, saying “apparently that language [in the ruling] was either misunderstood or ignored, but what I said was the further implementation [of the collective-bargaining bill] was enjoined. That is now what I want to make crystal clear.”
    Sumi warned Walker and his fellow Republicans that “willful defiance of a court order” will subject them to sanctions from the court.

    Looks like the Wisconsin Republicans are running into a little bump in the road

    Roger,
    Do you really think a Dane county judge has jurisdiction of the legislative branch of the state of Wisconsin government??

    Really????


    Wait.....never mind.....

    BTW--Her initial rulling was for the publication in the Wisconsin State Journal ( a newspaper) be held back.
    Walkers staff administrator published it and now it's LAW!!!!!
    No more union dues deducted from workers checks and deposited in the unions accounts.


    BAM........HEAD SHOT!!!!!!!


    Well done Governor Walker & the WI State Legislature!!!!

    Roger-

    Since you posted such a biased account of this action, here are a couple more.

    I question whether her angst was properly directed at the Governor since it was everyday worker bees in the Legislative Reference Service that took the disputed action. Maybe Judge Sumi needs a high school course in government. I know....she can read

    Nope, nothing biased about those sources, nothing at all.

    Yes, she does need a couse in the seperation between the legislative branch and judicial.

    from the Huffington Post...


    Attorneys for the Department of Justice, which is representing the Republicans, contend the case means nothing because legislators are immune from lawsuits and Sumi has no authority to intervene in the legislative process.
    "Her action today again flies in the face of the separation of powers between the three branches of government," Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, R-Horicon, said in a statement.

    Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi is a judge on the Wisconsin Circuit Court. Apparently this is the lowest of the state courts.

    Here is a link to the original decision. http://wicourts.gov/news/view.jsp?id=248

    This makes a single interpretation from which the rest of the decision stems. She cites “Public notice of every meeting of a governmental body shall be given at least 24 hours prior to the commencement of such meeting unless for good cause such notice is impossible or impractical, in which case shorter notice may be given, but in no case may the notice be provided less than two hours in advance of the meeting.” (§19.84(3))

    There is no definition of "good cause" and therefore it's up to the governmental body to determine this. With all that was going on in Madison at the time, the 24 hour rule may indeed have been "impossible or impractical". To say otherwise is to assume that the judge's hindsight is superior to the legislature's foresight. Afterall, they did comply with the law in that it does provide for a 2 hour notice in such circumstances and they honored that.
