Judge Strikes Down Gov. Walker Law

Scott Walker makes remarks to the news media after a meeting of the National Governors Association with President Barack Obama at the White House February 27, 2012 in Washington, DC. The bipartisan association is finishing its three-day meeting today. Walker, a Republican, will probably face a recall election this year, an effort spearheaded in part by Democrats and pro-union supporters in his state.  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

    Now that’s what some would call justice. A Wisconsin judge struck down the controversial state law championed by Gov. Scott Walker in a landmark ruling Friday. The law would have effectively ended collective bargaining rights for teachers and most other workers in the state. In his ruling Friday, Judge Juan Colas said the law violated both the state and U.S. constitution, and ruled it null and void. It’s not yet clear whether Colas’s ruling means the law—which has already been in effect for over a year—will be immediately suspended. A spokesman for Walker said he is confident the decision will be overturned on appeal.
