Madison Unions Drop Suit Consolidation Attempt

Apparently, what changed their mind was the realization such a move would allow the state’s attorneys to seek a new judge in the case. [A rather common practice mind you.]

The current judge assigned to the case; why Maryann Sumi of course!

Two city of Madison labor unions and Dane County dropped their request to consolidate their complaints over the guv’s collective bargaining law after being told doing so would allow the state to seek a new judge.

Dane County and two city of Madison labor unions, AFL-CIO Local 236 and Firefighters Local 311, sought to consolidate their separate complaints over the act.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs asked the state to agree not to seek a substitution of judges before moving forward. But Judge Maryann Sumi said the defendants did not have to bind themselves to that commitment. The motion was then withdrawn.

Sumi also agreed with state attorneys that the motion to combine the cases was likely premature and cautioned attorneys in all cases related to the budget repair bill about their public comments when emotions are running high.

Emphasis added.
