MADISON (WKOW) -- Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has asked the state appeals court to put on hold a judge's ruling repealing parts of Act 10, the collective bargaining law.
Van Hollen requested a stay Thursday on the ruling by Dane County Judge Juan Colas.
Van Hollen had requested a stay from Colas, but Monday, Colas refused to issue a stay on his September ruling. Colas said Van Hollen and the state "failed to show that they will suffer irreparable harm if the stay is not granted."
Van Hollen is now taking the motion to the appeals court.
The lower court's ruling last month overturned the law as it pertained to school and local government workers.
Colas said in his ruling that the law violates school and local employees' constitutional rights.
