Woo-hoo! Judge blocks WI collective bargaining bill

YES!!!!! The twittersphere tells us a judge ordered Wisconsin's secretary of state NOT to publish the anti-worker law (meaning it won't become law) because it was passed in violation of the state's open meetings law.

Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi issued a temproary restraining order halting the bill stripping public union employees of their collective bargaining rights. The bill passed earlier this month.

Yes! A temporary restraining order has been ordered regarding the crappy legislation GOP senators pushed through! #wiunion #winning
Before you get too excited,
RT @jvanegeren: Despite Sumi's ruling, lawmakers can give proper notice and hold joint conference committee meeting again #wiunion
The next hearing is March 29 at 8:30 a.m.
