Appeals court refuses to reinstate union law

MADISON, Wis. -

A Wisconsin appeals court has refused to put on hold a judge's decision repealing major parts of Gov. Scott Walker's law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public workers.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen asked the 4th District Court of Appeals to place the September ruling of Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas on hold while an appeal is pending. Colas refused in October and the appeals court on Tuesday upheld that decision.

The appeals court said it sees "no basis to set aside the circuit court's decision that a stay was not warranted."

A spokeswoman for Van Hollen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Last year's ruling overturned the law as it pertained to school and local government workers.
