Dane County DA Ozanne may ask Supreme Court to rehear union lawsuit

Possibly the most controversial court in state history:

The district attorney who filed a lawsuit challenging Wisconsin’s law passed earlier this year effectively ending collective bargaining rights for most public workers said Thursday he is considering asking the state Supreme Court to rehear the case.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne told The Associated Press he was looking at making the request after learning that Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman had received free legal services from a firm that defended the law in that case decided in June.

Gableman was part of a four-justice majority that upheld the law, which generated massive opposition protests earlier this year and made Wisconsin the center of the national fight over union rights.
