The Wisconsin state Supreme Court smacked the liberal activist judge who tried to dictate policy to the other two branches of state government. The state Supreme court ruled that Judge Maryann Sumi never had the right to stick her nose into state legislative business when she invalidated Wisconsin’s law which would restrict the collective bargaining “rights” of public service employees.
The court waxed quite eloquent in its public flogging of the activist judge:
The court ruled that Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi’s ruling, which had held up implementation of the collective bargaining law, was in the void ab initio, Latin for invalid from the outset.
And, in case you missed it the first time:
The court concluded that Sumi exceeded her jurisdiction, ‘invaded’ the Legislature’s constitutional powers and erred in halting the publication and implementation of the collective bargaining law.
