Van Hollen Won't Stall Court's Union RulingSubmitted: 03/16/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen won't try to stall a lower court's union ruling. He won't ask the Wisconsin Supreme Court to put a hold a the ruling that threw out major portions of the law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public unions.

Van Hollen Won't Stall Union Ruling/Letting lower court ruling stand. Van Hollen's decision comes after a state appeals court refused to issue a stay.

Van Hollen says he's focused on the merits of the case that's pending before a state appeals court. He says he's confident the entire law will ultimately be upheld.

The appeal comes to a ruling last year that overturned the law for school and local government workers in Madison and Milwaukee.

There's confusion over whether the ruling affects just those two cities or is statewide.
