MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A judge says no one should expect a quick ruling in a lawsuit challenging Wisconsin’s contentious collective bargaining law.

Secretary of State Doug La Follette said he plans to publish the law on March 25. But Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, a Democrat, has filed a lawsuit to block publication and challenging the legality of the state Senate’s vote on the plan.

Judge Maryann Sumi told attorneys she’ll hold a hearing on Friday. She may decide whether to block publication that day if she’s comfortable, but said she won’t rule on the rest of the case that day.

She said she’ll be out all next week and warned that no one should expect a quick resolution.
