Ozanne asks state Supreme Court to reopen collective bargaining challenge


MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne has asked the state Supreme Court to reopen his lawsuit challenging the state's collective bargaining law.

Ozanne filed the suit in March alleging Republican lawmakers violated open meetings laws during the run-up to passing the measure.  When the case got to the Supreme Court, justices upheld the law.

Earlier this month, word got out that one of the conservative justices, Michael Gableman, accepted free legal services from the law firm that defended the union measure.

In filings Friday, Ozanne argued Gableman's participation in the decision voided it.  He asked the Supreme Court to vacate the ruling and disqualify Gableman from further proceedings if he doesn't remove himself.
