Review granted in 'Milwaukee Journal Sentinel v. Department of Administration'

The Wisconsin Supreme Court on September 11, 2008 accepted certification from the Court of Appeals decision in this case (2007AP1160). The issue:
Whether courts have jurisdiction to review the process the legislature used to amend the open records law (Wis. Stat. § 19.37 (1) (a)) by ratifying a collective bargaining agreement; and, if so, whether the legislative process was effective to bring about a change in the law.

Statements of issues are from the most recent Table of Pending Cases.
