Every moment when one of Walker’s crew is told “no” is a happy one for me.
Today State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen was told, to my understanding:
- the Wisconsin Court of Appeals District IV lacks the authority to withdraw an appeal to the Supreme Court, and so, we will not do that.
- you can’t just say that telling the LRB do do a print job makes a document a law.
“..it is apparent that the Attorney General does not merely request an order permitting the withdrawal of the petition; he seeks a ruling on an entirely new question: whether an act by the Legislative Reference Bureau on Friday March 25, 2011 means that the Act, which is the subject of the injunction, has become law. The Attorney General’s desire for a ruling on this issue is apparent because the only ground he offers to justify withdrawal is his legal argument and assertion that the act has become law.”

In Wisconsin we are fighting a disinformation campaign from Walker Inc. It’s as absurd as a Monty Python skit without all the funny. I would be as disturbed by Walker waking up one day and declaring the sky is green as I am that the Walker administration decided to declare Wisconsin Act 10 complete.
Actually, this is more disturbing. We would all feel qualified to contradict Walker on a matter such as sky color. But the law … you’ll need an expert. Here’s where I acknowledge Walker is creating new work in Wisconsin. I just wish it wasn’t for lawyers.
