Judge Denies Stay of Right-to-Work Law

I admit… I’m surprised.

MADISON — Dane County Circuit Court Judge William Foust has denied a motion for a temporary injunction against the state’s right-to-work law.

The judge must believe that the plaintiffs case is really weak.

    Called it!

    I got a real kick out of local news coverage on ruling. One network found a Democrat accusing Dane County judges of being habitually conservative!

    I knew in advance that even crazy liberal Dane County judges were not going to buy the argument that union members need to be forced to join. Doing nothing still means union members can still join the union…simple as that.

    Actually, Foust is fairly conservative- he used to be the sheriff of Dane County, if I am not mistaken and he ran as a Republican way back in the 1990’s.
    Foust is probably the only decent judge in Dane County and the plaintiffs probably knew they lost the moment they saw they got Foust.

    Then union had dumbest legal counsel on planet. Wisconsin law allows you to sub judge, for any reason, as long as the request is the first filing after judge is assigned upon filing of complaint.

    Legal counsel should have known this judge’s conservative predisposition to legal sanity. Union should sue their lawyers for malpractice. This is a positively hilarious bonehead lawyer move!
