Appeals Court ruling blocks enforcement of Act 10 provisions

Patrick Marley reports at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"The court of appeals declined to issue an immediate stay Monday as it considers the case, saying that there was not a showing of a strong likelihood the commissioners would overturn the contempt ruling [by Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas] on appeal.
"In the short term, Monday's ruling continues to block union certification elections that would have determined whether unions could negotiate labor contracts with schools and local governments. With Monday's ruling, the unions can continue to engage in those negotiations."
