Appellate court bumps budget bill suit up to Supreme Court

    The Wisconsin Court of Appeals today asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to directly take up a complaint alleging an open meetings law violation in how Republican lawmakers approved a bill to revoke the collective bargaining rights of public employees.
    The 4th District Court of Appeals wrote in its certification request that there are several questions arising from the complaint, including whether striking down a legislative act for violating the open meetings law is allowed, and if so, can a court stop the secretary of state from publishing the act before it becomes law.
