Court Overturns WI Union Law

It's been a tough couple of days for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. On Thursday, state authorities declared that opponents could proceed with a recall election against him. Less than 24 hours later, a federal court struck down portions of the law he signed that curbs collective-bargaining rights. The court ruled that dues can be automatically withdrawn and the state can't require annual certification votes. Most of the law remains intact, but the automatic dues withdrawal will resume no later than May 31.
