MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he will ask a judge Tuesday to put his decision reinstating collective bargaining rights for school and local government workers.
Van Hollen is seeking the stay while he also appeals the case. Van Hollen said Monday he has not decided whether to pursue that case directly with the state Supreme Court.
He said not granting a stay of the order could create chaos, with unions attempting to negotiate new deals while the law is not in effect.
Van Hollen calls Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas’ decision “woefully legally deficient” and he predicts it will be overturned.
