Wisconsin Teapublicans do not like judges finding their laws unconstitutional. That’s why they’re releasing an unconstitutional bill to revive unconstitutional bills.
Rep. David Craig, a Republican from West Bend, is sponsoring a new bill that puts a stay on a judge’s block WHEN the judge’s block is appealed.
He does not like the current routine which goes something like this:
1) Scott Walker signs unconstitutional law.
2) Somebody files to block law in court on grounds it’s unconstitutional.
3) Circuit judge says “Yup. Unconstitutional. Blocking it.”
4) WI GOP or its equivalent files to appeal judge’s decision, and while waiting for said appeal, the law remains blocked
That does not engender “stability” says Rep. Craig.
But former state Supreme Court Justice Janine Geske said “To statutorily undo a court order before another court has acted on it is clearly to me an infringement on a court’s independence, and I don’t think it will withstand constitutional scrutiny”
Say what you will about these Republicans but they make the courts run on time.
